I have been a journalist for 40 years and a broadcaster for the last 37 of those years. I'm on-air 18 hours a week, at least two hours of which are devoted to food and drink. I've cooked on television (e.g., Carlton Food Network and Open House with Gloria Hunniford on Channel 5), been food and drink editor of BBC Southern Counties Radio Magazine, and written food and travel pieces for Yes Chef! magazine. I won a week of Come Dine with Me on Channel 4.

rusty A-level French
