Hello from Basingstoke

Hi. I was referred here from another cooking forum.
I live in Basingstoke, England with my family - one wife and two boys. I am the main carer and cook. I tend to cook fairly basic stuff, enjoying cooking from raw ingredients and trying to avoid processed food. We try to grow our own vegetables.

I am originally from Zimbabwe and use some African cooking as a twist to the home style.
