"There is no love sincerer than the love of food". (George Bernard Shaw)

My passion for food began as a student, when I spent time with a wealthy French family on the Cote D'Azure. We dined out regularly and I learned to appreciate new produce and different methods of preparation – what an introduction this gave me to "foreign food".

Since that time, my palate has learned to savour the dishes of a world table. I have sampled the culinary delights of over 60 countries worldwide, from street food in the Caribbean and Asia, to Tapas in Spain and her former colonies, fine wines and haute cuisine throughout Europe, hamburgers in the US, steaks in Argentina, the spices and heart warming dishes of India and the sub continent and more …

The joy of savouring traditional fare with local beverages has never left me, and the exciting changes of fusion food that bring together ingredients, widely separated by geography and culture, just feeds my passion.

Escape the all-inclusive resort and enjoy some tasty treats in Cancun

Holidays for me reach beyond the grounds and facilities of a hotel, even those offering the very best of everything. I love to escape and see what's going on locally and in one of the Caribbean's most popular destinations, Cancun, there's plenty going on. Restaurants and bars compete with sumptuous offerings from the luxury hotels, and provide culinary delights to enjoy, beyond the hotel complex.
