A track you love to hear on a sunny morning…
I always love putting on ‘Guy Mantzur, Roy Rosenfeld – ‘Epika’ on a fresh Sunday morning while I make breakfast. It’s a lovely track and puts me in a good mood.

Hungarian Goulash, as my step mum’s Granddad was from Hungry and used to cook it for us most weekend’s when we went over there.
Who taught you to cook?
I taught myself how to cook as I have lived on my own from the age of 16, so I had to grow and look after myself fast….

A DJ or musician that has surprised you with their cooking skills at home/their home…what did they cook?
Reset Robot has knocked up some pretty amazing dishes and I think he could become a chef if he wasn’t a DJ ha ha! The best dish he cooked me was at his house, where he did a homemade pizza straight from his own pizza oven! He also introduced me to marmite and peanut butter on sourdough – don’t know it until you’ve tried it! I made that mistake.
