At home

When you’re self-employed, your house becomes more than a home – it also becomes where you work, and my kitchen table is at the heart of what I do. It’s where I eat breakfast with John, feast on brunch with my family, and sit round to dinner with friends.

But it’s also where I develop recipes, play with new spice blends, pair unusual tastes, try endless tarts, cakes, frittatas and casseroles, and come up with flavourful vegetarian dishes for shoots, books and magazine features.

It’s where I sit to ponder new appetizing combinations over steaming cups of Lady Grey, or, when time is a little tighter late at night, full glasses of red wine.

And so it seemed like a fitting homage to my home in Hackney when a talented photographer asked to come and shoot my house for a feature on chefs in their homes.

From the rows of colourful recipe books, to the sink that has held endless pans of washing-up (not always the rather picturesque flowers seen here), the resulting photos are a tribute to a place impossible to separate from my working life.

Love your living room, and especially the paining over the fireplace.
