Every woman wants a man who can cook; okay I lie, I love a man who can cook so I will speak for myself on this one. Imagine getting home to a meal prepared with nothing but tender loving care by your one and only. Chef Takura (hello beard gang) took some time out to share spinets of his story with me and you can read all about it below.

I have always loved cooking, working in hospitality made the choice easier.
My favorite meal changes so often. I am into soups at the moment. I also always love making pizza and pasta from scratch because they are so versatile for toppings and sauces!!
I currently work at Forest Hills Resort as the Managing Director. I love building and making our product better. Sadly I have very little time to cook. (There goes my dream to have a Chef Bae!) Forest Hills is a beautiful location many places to hike and enjoy nature.
Being the wine lover that I am I couldn’t resist asking him on his thoughts on food and wine…
Pairing food and wine was my last job in Australia where I was the Head Sommelier (a wine waiter) at a Modern European Bistro. Pay attention to the weight of the dish as well as flavour. A hearty beef dish will go better with a full bodied red wine and a light spicy Asian dish would go better with a lighter white wine. Experiment a lot and see what your palette enjoys!!!
I do try and exercise as much as I can. The nice thing about living on a mountain is that EVERY walk has an incline!! I also like to swim and skip.
I have just gained a little more fitness and I get to see the area and take loads of nature photos. The greatest challenge I have had so far when it comes to exercising is making time and there is no one to work out with out here. Chef Takura needs to read about the benefits of running alone.
However, I do enjoy running, I will start running when I get someone to chase me!
