Normally, I’m off out for a swim before my daughter Heidi wakes up, so breakfast doesn’t happen, and by the time I’ve paused for breath, it’s lunch. This typically involves miso soup or a vanilla bean and honey smoothie, along with a brie, grape and cranberry sandwich. I do love the sandwiches from Rudi’s Deli on Forrest Road. Quite often dinner is some sort of salad and seafood combination; I eat a lot of both. I don’t cook nearly as much as I should, but when I do it’s pretty much saturated in garlic. If I’m eating out, I’m obsessed with Japanese cuisine. Sushiya on Dalry Road is my favourite in Edinburgh. I also really enjoy Indian food or a good Mexican, though the latter is more difficult to pin down locally. When I’m on tour I eat out constantly, especially whilst in the States where much greater effort is made to keep the customer happy… and I like to be a happy customer! Being raised Catholic, I have that terrible guilt about food being wasted, ‘Think of the starving children in Africa!’, I say, as I scavenge through your leftovers…
