I REALLY HATE COOKING But my family and I all made promises to each other this year: to do everything in our power not to die. This means less drinking, no smoking, more exercise – and healthier diets. And so, reluctantly, I’m going in to the kitchen. I’m determined to discover which button does what on the hob. I’m on a mission to master chopping and slicing. I’m sticking my flag in the uncharted territory of the oven, and I’m documenting my dangerous journey here.
