Culinary Philosophy and Influences

“My approach to cooking is one of simplicity.  If you have fresh, local, good quality ingredients cooking does not have to be complicated and fussy. The flavours of the ingredients will stand for themselves. Good food, when made well with love and shared with family and friends, feeds the body and nourishes the soul.

My Mum is an inspired, self-taught cook and loves to entertain.  Our house was always filled with lovely people enjoying food and wine and good conversation over more food and wine.  My Dad is a manic vegetable gardener and is still in search of the perfect potato variety that he left behind on his native island of Jersey.  It is from them that I developed my love of food and my philosophy about cooking.”

– Danielle Dingle
