Food is a unique expression of a country’s culture. We explore cuisines from  around the world, from the everyday dishes we all love to the gastronomic heights. 


The language of food is complex and varied. As English becomes ever more a lingua franca, we explore the local food terms that make its culture and cuisine unique.


Gastrolingua explores food and drink from around the world. The world of food has no borders, and we are citizens of the world. We celebrate the diversity of the world’s cuisines, from street food to gourmet restaurants.


Nature has given us a planet that offers us all we need to live and prosper. Let’s give it the TLC it deserves. 





Allotments are hard work. Digging over the soil in winter, sowing and planting in spring, clearing the weeds through summer and harvesting in the autumn. 


It makes sense to plan the menu based on the seasonal produce that’s available. We aim to provide information on the seasonal rhythms and encourage healthy eating in tune with seasonal rhythms.


We have been tending our allotment in Lewes for the last five years, and we’ve tried to include photos of the produce when it’s in season.

Keeping an allotment is hard work. Let’s not be sentimental about it!

This year has been particularly difficult with the pandemic and a delayed spring that has meant almost everything we grew was behind schedule.

Global warming looks set to have an impact on all of us in the future, although there will be winners and losers.

 I was brought up overseas for most of my early life, mostly in east Africa, but at the time I was incredibly fussy with food – I must have driven my Mum mad.

She was a wonderful cook, an Austrian from Niederosterreich, and at one point virtually all I would eat was breakfast, soup and chicken. 

Thankfully things got better. I travelled to Japan for my first posting abroad, and absolutely loved the delicate umami flavours. Since then I have eaten pretty much everywhere. I would definitely describe myself as an omnivore.
