Hi there, I thought I'd post an introduction thread to introduce myself.

I'm an Englishman with a love of cooking. I get quite opinionated about cooking, but I guess I'm in good company here.
I'm the inventor of the five-course pastie, an ex-sous chef and I love Heston Blumenthal's attitude to cookery (although all his "In Search of Perfection" cooking generally needs a pinch of salt).
My sense of smell lets me down as I have allergic rhinitis and have to be told when I've set something on fire 50% of the time, but I don't let this stop me believing I know better and can do better.

I've been experimenting with brewing lately and managed some spiced carrot souffles last night without even use of scales.
