My food hero has to be Auguste Escoffier. And the villain? The man who's been most responsible for the death of food in my time is Ronald McDonald. He's always scared me, I think he's evil - he's a wolf in sheep's clothing. Him and the Hamburglar.
We are stronger as a group than an individual. Think in a cooperative and communal way, set up local food hubs and create growing communities.
Being a vegetarian Buddhist would be a bit harsh to deal with in the kitchen, so I'm a Taoist, I study martial arts, and I don't drink or smoke.
I don't come from any great culinary tradition - I'm from London!
I wish that the world's food was spread evenly on everybody's plate, and that no-one got more or less than anyone else.
