My favourite thing to do is eat. I am sure I am not the only person who rates this as their Number 1 thing to do during their spare time. I love eating a beautiful plate of food, and I like to share this beauty with everyone I know. I truly believe that most of the enjoyment of a plate of food is down to the presenation of it.

Having spent a lot of my working life living in Manchester, I have been exposed to many different types of cuisine and due to my Chinese background I have been fortunate enough to try many different ingredients from a young age. I spent 8 consecutive months in the North East of Spain in Lleida followed by 8 weeks in Lisbon where I learnt a lot about customs different to that of my own.

I have so many foods to share with you that I just can’t wait to get started! I started using a hashtag which a foodie friend of mine came up with when I used to always send her food recommendations, and I always use this when I have enjoyed eating something. Keep an eye out for it – it’s #franrecommends.

So watch this space guys.. I hope you enjoy!
