Hey there! I'm Tom...

And TJR MinT is my small part of the internet where I can share with you some of my favourite recipes, as well as tips and techniques you can use to help develop your own skills in the kitchen.

I have worked as a chef since leaving university after studying Fine Art for five years and although I have a strong love of art I have a much stronger passion for food. This is why I decided to set out on accomplishing my goal to become a professional chef. Now it's time for me to give back what I've learnt and I hope you can join me.

Working as a chef I have noticed that people often ordered food depending on their mood. Some would stick to a strict healthy diet and others would take a break from that to treat themselves and maybe go for the less healthy option. My website is always open for you to find some Good Day Recipes and Bad Day Recipes of mine so you can choose depending on your mood. Do you want to stick to the healthy, balanced and nutritious meals or do you feel you need to reach out for an indulgent desserts or some comfort food? The choice is yours!
