I live in part of a Grade 2 listed, late Georgian property in the heart of London's trendiest area - Dalston. I love cooking and eating good food. I grow a fair amount of my own vegetables, herbs & fruit. Though influenced by my southern Italian heritage, my cooking incorporates other food traditions such as Turkish, North American and Modern European. As far as possible, I try to incorporate something homegrown into everything I cook. I am happy to cook vegetarian meals and also vegan. I can do both halal and kosher meals upon request. In my "spare time" I enjoy reading, visiting art galleries, listening to live music, watching films, going to comedy gigs, hiking and travelling. If you would like to know more about me, visit my website: keentogreen.co.uk or the Keentogreen Facebook page. I am a native English speaker with passable Italian and some Spanish.
