If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...

Walking in the mountains. I'm in Switzerland � it's beautiful, very serene.

I wish people would take more notice of...

Old people. They can't get on the Tube for fear of being trampled.

The most surprising thing that happened to me was...

When the Queen was going to have her 70th birthday party and I was asked to cook the meal by her son. It was wonderful and went straight to my heart.

A common misperception of me is....

People think I'm a celebrity chef, they ask what my favourite hype on food is. I'm not a celebrity chef, I object, and there is no hype. If I'm labelled a veteran chef that's fine because I've been cooking since I was 14.

I am not a politician but...

It would be very difficult to be a politician because they lie. I want to be accountable and they don't.

The ideal night out is ...

I would love one of my chefs to make me a seafood pizza with a thin crust. It would be a night in with a DVD, the pizza and a vintage bottle of champagne, aged between 10 to 15 years.

In another life I'd have been...

A wine-maker. I own a vineyard but it's too small to make wine. Making wine is like growing fruit or being a farmer� it depends on the earth and on nature, and in the end you are left with a wonderful product.

The best age to be is...

50 � you can still build on what you know but you have so much knowledge.

In a nutshell, my philosophy is this:

Be yourself; don't try to be something you're not
