My name is Michael Sheridan and I own this and several other websites all of which revolve around the central theme of food in all its aspects.

As a professional chef, I have a deep and abiding interest not just in what we eat and how we prepare it, but also on the effects it has on us, both good and bad, and what we can do to increase our enjoyment of this most fundamental of human activities. After all, everyone has to eat.

As a result, what started out as a simple cooking site has grown into an entire colony that embraces everything from basic recipes to dealing with obesity and the negative aspects of over-indulging in our favorite foods. And it’s still growing.

From hygiene in the kitchen, through first aid for cooks to articles and advice on acid reflux, diabetes and the like, I have tried to cover as wide a range of subjects as I can that are likely to be of interest to cooks and their families. The main list of websites is below. Please feel free to browse for as long as you please and come back often. You are always very welcome and there is always new material being added on a daily basis.

Best wishes
Michael Sheridan
