Interviewed by…


Today, I’m being interviewed by DeGroof for your delight.

If your income suddenly doubled, how would your lifestyle change?

I don’t think it would change my plans or my ambitions particularly, but I do think it would mean I realise them a little quicker. Instead of saving, I’d be able to do whatever I wished immediately. That would be nice.

I guess the only major change would be that I’d be tempted to buy a second property somewhere.

What was the best meal you’ve ever eaten?

An easy question. My wife and I got engaged at The Fat Duck restaurant which was voted the best restaurant in the world. (It’s now number 2). It was then inkeeping with our engagement that we celebrated our marriage with a meal for two at The French Laundry restaurant, in Yountville California – another much lauded restaurant. It was staggering : 13 courses of the finest food and best wine you can imagine. We were very well looked after and got to meet Thomas Keller afterwards. Thoroughly recommended.

Who is the most famous person you’ve ever met?

At the age of 12, I met Gerald Ford and whilst at university, I met Mikhial Gorbachev. I’m curiously proud to say that I’ve met leaders of the world’s two superpowers (well, I know one isn’t a superpower now, but you get the gist)

What was the worst date you’ve ever had?

Not a fan of dates, or many other dried fruits.
