Like many people these days, I'm passionate about food - the provenance of food - and its sustainability.  I prefer to eat in yummy restaurants, but am a keen cook, and sourdough maker.  I like to promote worthy producers, shops and suppliers, and especially local suppliers.

In addition to my food interest, I’m obsessed with the Renaissance, and have an MA in Renaissance Studies.  I am particularly interested in Florentine art, and the patronage of Cosimo de Medici and the Medici family. 

Say hi when you’re next on Twitter.
