Are kebabs really your favourite food?
(When we were in the office, pre-COVID, Simon was part of a group who ordered a kebab, I think it was every Thursday?)
A proper decent kebab is certainly up there, but not favourite, it’s almost impossible to say favourite, but probably a charred bone-in ribeye steak with marrow gravy and some simple veg/salad
Where do you like to holiday? What is your favourite getaway?
I’ve always gone somewhere hot and I don’t know why because I’m not a massive fan of really hot weather, this year I was thinking of heading north rather than south… But, having said that, recently I’ve been to Dubai twice and I love it there. I like city breaks for food (obviously) bars and so on.
What do you do to relax and unwind?
I’m a bit of a gamer – the current game of choice; Call Of Duty, but I like films, I like beer, I like food, I like walking…
What are your current dreams/aspirations?
A World food tour. OMG! There’s too many… Japan – Wagyu, Mexico – Carnitas, USA – steaks, wings, burgers, Italy – the varied pizzas you get per region, Germany – pork, beer, Spain – Tapas. I’d like to go to El Bulli in Spain, Momofuku in NYC, some of the Brooklyn Pizza “slice” places, Moti Mahal in Delhi (invented Butter Chicken) … I could go on!
Well, thank you Simon. It’s been great hearing about your personal hobbies and getting to know you on another level, even though it has been over Teams chat and calls!
