Ting ting! 
‘I have to have a bell in the kitchen. It’s so important for ensuring smooth service.’

Childhood memories
‘The monthly family gatherings around the table at grandma’s, eating meatballs in tomato sauce together. The ultimate in conviviality!’ 

‘Basil is without doubt by favourite herb! A touch of Italy in your kitchen adds extra warmth.’ 

Cold beer
‘The best thirst-quencher for me is still a cold beer. And it tastes better here than anywhere else in the world!’
