About the madness

I’m a Canadian, married to a Scot, living in Dubai. I’m also an unemployed housewife with too much time on my hands, a penchant for cooking, and perhaps the smallest drop of lunacy in my blood. I come from a long line of good cooks, and truly hope that I live up to their standards, though I’m desperately poor at following recipes and probably experiment more than I should. I love good food, good wine, and good company, and adore playing with my food.

    Blowtorching a steak sounds like great entertainment in the land of the midnight sun when the snow is up around our knees in the middle of winter. Can’t wait to try it :)

    Lizzie – I’m always looking for testers! A partner in crime would be fun too – especially if you want to scour the spice souk with me for the proper Chicken Tikka Masala spices. Email me at if you’d like to volunteer!

    Just read your incredibly entertaining Perfect Hamburger posts (1 to 3), and am desparate to read part 4. Even though I live in (not quite as) sunny Berkshire, I’m still wary of the perfection recipes and want to have a go at the Perfect Hamburger too.

    When will you publish part 4 – or have I missed it?

    Please keep up the good work. I think I’ve found a surrogate kitchen soulmate – as my wife is definitely not a kitchen person, but does enjoy my cooking.

    Thanks, Steve
