Before leaving home I was lucky enough to enjoy the splendid culinary skills of my friend and house mate, Tom and one of my best friends of many years, Wozzy (Warren). Both love cooking and are brilliant at it. It is traditional in my house for Wozzy to do the Sunday roast and between them they tend to take over the kitchen during the week as well! We all know what we are good at and generally stick to our corners. Personally, I am good at eating!
Before my trip, people kept asking me what training I was doing. The answer was “I’m bulking up”! Need to get some weight on me before I leave or I’ll waist away!”
The same catchphrase would be announced as I reached for each home baked Viennese whirl. It was a great excuse and one people seemed to accept willingly!
