in a kitchen. As the youngest child of a farming family
in Cornwall I was always the one helping my mother make

school we were allowed to chose between metalwork or
domestic science, as the former was taught by a notorious
sadist and the latter was full of girls and I was the
only boy in the cooking class" - Italy
