Who is this guy?
Hi everyone, I’m Rob,
Husband to a beautiful wife and Dad to two insanely beautiful little people. I’m pretty sure you and I have something in common…a love of food. For anyone to even find these words they must have trawled through a fair few Google pages before they came across this site, but here it is ‘Gather’. My little space on this rather large web, a place where I’m going to share with you everything that I’ve learnt so far on the topic of food. I’ve been obsessed with food from day one. My parents learned quickly that to keep me quiet and out of mischief, food was unrivalled in its effectiveness. As you can see in the picture, the key to keeping an unruly Rob quiet involved a cardboard box and some biscuits, a technique that would probably still work today. My love of food has grown over the years, as has my understanding of it. Through reading a million cookbooks, travelling and cooking my way around the world, studying professionally, then running my own wedding catering business, I’ve learnt an awful lot about everything culinary. I’d like to use this blog to share with you my love of food through lots of delicious recipes and helpful tips. Thanks so much for coming, I really hope you like it here.
It’s what great food is all about
Gathering great ingredients that are seasonal and lovingly grown
Gathering brilliant ideas on how to use your beautiful produce
Gathering friends and family to share the feast
I love food of all sorts, but I’ve recently adopted a way of eating that is lower in carbs and I really am enjoying the benefits of it. I find it works well at stabilising energy and hunger levels, as well as helping me to combat the well-known phenomenon that is the dreaded ‘dad bod’. If you love the carbs, hopefully there’ll still be lots of inspiration to be found here. I’ll also be creating lots of ‘Cheat Day’ recipes to help cure any carb heavy cravings that build throughout the week.
