My name is Simon Davis and since I flew the nest to go to university, I’ve fallen in love with cooking and, by extension, eating! I’m still young and inexperienced however, so this blog aims to document all the discoveries I’ve made as I attempt to improve my skills and my knowledge. From exotic and unusual ingredients from around the world, to perhaps those from closer to home that have fallen from favour, I’m always looking for new flavours and recipes to brighten up everyday meals, like you might get from a grating of lemon zest or a flourish of fresh green herbs!
Many of my culinary explorations centre around the food of the Far East, in particular the hearty flavours of Korea, but I’m always keen to learn more about food from all parts of the world and the customs, traditions and tastes that they are associated with. I’ve got a long way to go in honing my skills as there’s always more to learn. In December 2014 I completed a Certificate of Cookery course at Ashburton Cookery School in Devon.
While I maintain this blog for my own enjoyment, I’m more than happy to accept items for reviews on this blog, write sponsored pieces or produce copy for corporate and other external websites, big or small. I would also welcome commissions for producing articles and/or recipes for food and drink, lifestyle and trade publications, either in print or online (to discuss this, please click here for contact information).
