Welcome to Gav’s Kitchen
Welcome to Gav’s Kitchen, a family food blog where generations of culinary heritage meet the flavours of the world!
I’m Gav, and my love affair with food began in the heart of our family kitchen, under the guidance of my Mum. With over five decades of culinary exploration and 25+ years dedicated to nourishing my own family, I’ve embarked on a gastronomic journey that spans continents and cultures.
I am happily married and have three beautiful kids.
A Culinary Odyssey:
My culinary expertise has been honed through the artistry of traditional family recipes and the diverse cuisines I’ve encountered in my travels to 45+ countries during my Engineering career. From the aromatic spices of Indian curries to the comforting embrace of Italian pasta, the hearty stews of British and Irish cooking to the exotic flavours of Indonesian satay, my recipes are a testament to the rich tapestry of global culinary traditions.
At Gav’s Kitchen, I’m passionate about bringing the world’s flavours to your family table. Each recipe is a blend of authentic techniques and personal touches, inspired by the meals I’ve shared with loved ones and friends across the globe. Whether you’re preparing a comforting British Roast, a fiery Indian curry, or a crunchy Dutch cookie, my aim is to simplify international cuisine for family cooking, making it accessible and enjoyable for all.
Influences and Inspiration:
A few renowned chefs primarily influenced my culinary journey. People such as Keith Floyd, Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Anthony Bourdain, Rick Stein and Delia Smith, come to mind. Their creativity and passion for food continue to inspire my creations. Their innovative techniques and dedication to the art of simplifying cooking have shaped my approach. I now experiment with flavours and textures. This ensures that every dish I share has been well and truly tested.
Join me on this culinary odyssey as we explore the world’s kitchens, one recipe at a time. Let’s embark on a delicious adventure that celebrates the essence of family, tradition, and global gastronomy.
