Hi, I'm Richard!
I have always been interested in food from the early days of sitting in the kitchen doing my homework and helping Mam cook dinner or a cake and her showing how and why things were done. I wanted to do cookery classes at school but my father wouldn't allow it as he said that was only for girls! When I was 13 my Mam had to go into hospital for a very long time and i was left to cook for my father and little brother. After several weeks of Frozen Fish Fingers, Instant Mashed Potato and Frozen Peas he reluctantly agreed that I could attend cookery classes and my love affair with food began.
When I found out that my daughter had dairy and egg allergy, I started to bake goods according to her diet. Then baking plant-based motivated me to support other people who suffer from allergies or people who have chosen to alter their diets because of ethical issues. I believe that FoodSt is the right platform to share these meals with everyone who loves to try tasty food. For me, cooking is a kind of meditation that allows me to feel the moment, besides, I enjoy cooking for my family. My cuisine is plant-based. I can describe my style as innovative. I had my grandmother who was a talented cook, has influenced my way of cooking. I grew up with eating a mix of ethnic dishes which helped me to develop my palate in years. I look forward to bringing you some delicious plant based treats.
