People have always told me I can cook. Even if they've laughed at the fact that I can't swim, drive or ride a bike.
I mean, look at my graduation yearbook entry, written almost a decade ago (maybe ignore the bit about Ann Widdecombe):
I've dabbled in most cuisines, but unsurprisingly the one that is closest to my heart is Burmese food (been trying to write a Burmese cookbook for years, remember?).
Of course, no-one's ever had the chance to try my cooking except close friends and family.
Because for one night only, I'm taking over The Wild Garlic, the highly acclaimed Dorset restaurant of Chef Patron Mat Follas, winner of MasterChef 2009 and all-round good guy who has kindly decided to take a chance on me.
Friday 1st October is the date for my pop-up Burmese restaurant - the menu is yet to be finalised, but it will be authentic Burmese cuisine. It may or may not feature century eggs.
Book now on 01308 861 446.
Hope to see some of you there so you can judge for yourself ...
