Five Things I Learnt At Grub Kitchen

I recently spent 10 days in St Davids, Pembrokeshire, while doing an internship at Grub Kitchen as the final part of my Natural Chef course. I didn’t have to go to the other end of the country – I could have stayed in London and commuted from home. But I’m stubborn like that – going […]

The CNM Natural Chef – The End (Almost)

It’s been a Very Long Time since I updated this blog. I’ve been entirely preoccupied working towards assignments for Nutrition and the Natural Chef course, and then working on exam preparation for both too.

MY Version of Paleo: Part II

I can’t believe I’m writing another post on my version of Paleo, just 4 months after the last one. It’s not that anything has particularly changed, it’s just that I feel that I need to explain and further justify a few things. You see, since that post, my life has changed a bit, and with […]
