Here are his Top 5:

 

BREAD

For me bread is essential. It’s a shame that it’s difficult to findplaces where real bread is sold.  I likesourdough bread, which lasts for three days and has that true bread small. Ican't stand frozen bread. I'm very picky when it comes to bakeries. Forbreakfast, I always have a few slices of toast with olive oil, garlic andtomato. I kick off the day with bread, so I’m always looking for the placeswhere they make it best. When I go away I take bread with me from some hiddenbakery which makes it like they did in the good old days.

VEGETABLES

I'm passionate about the vegetables that I use for the dishes we cook athome. Leeks, onions, tomatoes, courgette and above all carrots, which mydaughter devours raw. We use vegetables for almost everything we prepare.

ANCHOVIES

This is something I just can’t resist. I love them battered. I’m alwaysin the fish section in the supermarket and I’ve got extremely high standards.My wife and her family are from Galicia, so fish and seafood have to havelabels of origin, fishing area and all the quality guarantees. 

WINKLES

This isn’t the most exciting seafood in the world, but I love it. OnFridays at home we always make a dinner that’s a bit special, as my family is startingthe weekend and I’m gearing up for the news. We buy some deli products we liketo give ourselves a bit of a treat.  Ifthere are periwinkles, and good quality ones aren’t always easy to find, thenthey always find their way into my shopping cart.
