Awesome! I never knew I had a blog space on the Jamie Oliver website till now :D So, about me. Well I'm a computer scientist by day. Gamer by night (when I have the time that is). I was born and raised here in Newcastle (Australia) and have grown up around the kitchen watching my parents cook. I got my passion for cooking from dad (who's actually a mechanical enginner/naval architect turned cook) who loves to play with ingredients to create new concoctions. He has focused on Asian cooking though whereas I've focused on more 'Western' foods. I'm no a foodie. I'm not a chef. I'm not even a great cook. But I do have a passion for food innovation and experimentation.
