James: I would say I’m pretty good at cooking; the amount we have to eat gives me an opportunity to practice a lot

Q: What would your ideal dinner party menu be?
James: Chicken wings in hot sauce with blue cheese dip followed by Reverse seared Boston chop, dauphinoise potatoes and vegetables with peppercorn sauce then finish with a cheeseboard!

Q: And who would be your ideal dinner party guest?

Q: Was there anything you wouldn’t eat as a child that you enjoy now?
James: As a kid I was pretty good, the only thing I didn’t enjoy much was peanuts but now I can’t get enough of them!

Q: We know you probably don’t have them often but what’s your favourite takeaway food?
