An difficult question I know, but how do you come up with ideas for cookbooks when it appears that everything has been done over and over again? (This from someone with a fairly serious cookbook habit that finds it a physical impossibility to walk past a book shop in case there's a cookery related volume he hasn't seen before or already purchased).

I'm not sure what I do is really 'new.' I think I do it in my own time, in my own style, and that's what makes it different. That and the fact that it was impossible to be quite as multi-national in previous generations as it is now.
