Food: Italian - tiramisù is just incredible; making fresh pizza and
pasta is a far too common occurrence in my house. I seem to use
tomatoes, onions, garlic and herbs every day; stir fries, curries,
and proper home-made roast dinner (when I'm at mum's house I give
in to the chickeny goodness). I love making bread. I love
Pieminister. I eat quite healthily, and make almost all of my own
food, and only eat animals occasionally when I'm out or if it's
already been served (i.e. at mum's house) – even then it's chicken.
When eating out, dessert is a must – often more than one.
Drinks-wise, I love fresh juice, lots of teas, Amaretto, Côtes du
Rhone wine, Pimms, and local cider.
