In my kitchen: Kerry pushes cooking to the limits
WE'VE been poking around in local kitchens to see what people love eating and cooking.
Name: Kerry Yates.
Occupation: Priest warden at St Saviours.
Cooking style: Eccentric. I push everything to the limits.
Who had the most influence on your cooking skills? My stepmum who was Indian.
What is your favourite dish to cook? I love cooking chicken curry and I love cooking salami pasta.
What's your worst cooking disaster? Once when I was 15 I cooked a lovely savoury mint stew and I put baking powder in it, but my stepdad ate it and said it was lovely.
What's your favourite meal of the day? Dinner, because I get to sit down with my family.
The first thing I cooked was.... Baked beans, when I was about six.
How do you flavour your food? I always flavour it to taste. I use a lot of garlics and gingers.
My guilty pleasure is.... Rice, basmati. I eat it every day.
Masterchef or My Kitchen Rules? I'm more Masterchef and the more I can involve the better.
How do you lunch? Just a cup of tea. Basmati rice and yogurt for breakfast. I'd do the same if I was having lunch.
