‘What I’ve learned is that cooking and mealtimes are not just about eating – it’s about sharing love and being together, having quality time. Now I have my own family, I’ve realised just how vital and precious that is. By writing this book I want to give you some insight into my life and my experiences in the kitchen.’ Joe Swash
