Having concluded that I am not enough of a smug, infuriating polymath… I’ve decided to learn to cook. It’s been going on for a while, but I thought I’d start the food section of my blog with a snapshot of how limited my cooking skills were at the start of this year.

Basically, I could toast bread, poach an egg, and reheat stuff. Admittedly my poached eggs were, and still are, art but as for the rest… Well, the journey to culinary wisdom begins here!
