Well, I’m Steve.
I started ThisGuyCooks way back in 2015 and it never really went anywhere. Life just kept getting in the way! I got married, we’ve moved house 3 times (we buy, develop and move on), we’ve had two beautiful children, Constance & Theodore. It just hasn’t stopped.
We live in Salisbury, Wiltshire. It’s a beautiful part of the world a stones through from Stonehenge and not far at all from the coast. We have really good access to the Jurassic coast which is just full to the brim with history and beauty. We’re really quite lucky!
We’re now in our forever(ish) home. We’re not planning on moving again anytime soon and after working hard and extending the house, I now have a kitchen I’m just absolutely in love with and couldn’t bare to leave!
The one thing that hasn’t changed is my love for cooking. I love reading about cooking. I love looking at photos of food. I love watching tv shows about cooking (the best by far is Masterchef Australia). I love cooking.
I get such joy from creating dishes for my family, especially for my children who are in a very fussy stage at the minute, so every mouthful is an absolute win in my books. I also really enjoy trying new recipes.
I have had a very varied career, but the most important to my love of cooking has to be my career as a photographer on board P&O Cruises. This job allowed me to travel the world for free and spend my hard earned money on trying every cuisine on offer to me. I’ve travelled to 78 countries around the world. This allowed me to really refine my tastes and develop, what I hope, is quite a good palette.
So this blog, started anew, will be a repository of my foodie adventures. New recipes, old recipes and experiences in between!
I hope you enjoy!
