What is your story about?

Accountants Can Cook recounts anecdotes of my travels to various cities and regions around the world including; Seoul, New York, Salt Lake City, Johannesburg, Stockholm, The Baltics, Moscow and Windhoek. Additionally, it contains 120 of my favourite recipes amassed during 40 years of travelling, eating and cooking.

Why should people know this story?

I have spent the first forty years of my life eating good food and drinking fine wines, ales and spirits; I fully intend to continue in the same vein over the next forty, or so, years. However, when I do finally “pop my clogs” I would like to be made into a pate which would be served at my wake. That way my friends will be able to relive the culinary experiences of my life. Should you not wish to wait that long, then may I suggest that you read on.
