Hey and welcome to DomInTheKitchen.com – My name is Dominic Franks and I am a cook and food writer, born in London into a family where food was a big part of everyday life. I grew up influenced by my mum and Delia Smith and many of my recipes reflect the simple, classic style of both women – with just a little bit of my own carefree attitude thrown in!
I moved to Belleau, (pronounced bell-oh) Lincolnshire 18 years ago so I could communicate with life in a healthier way. Lincolnshire is situated towards the central midlands of the UK, a coastal county above Norfolk and below Humberside and North Yorkshire. Not many people come here because it’s on the road to nowhere but we like it this way.
We’re fortunate enough to be surrounded by the most incredible produce and producers who tend to keep quiet about how fabulous they are so it has become part of my newly found passion for the county to shout for them.
I write a monthly recipe column for Lincolnshire Life Magazine, the counties biggest and best-selling magazine. I also write a regular ‘Food Heroes’ article for the magazine where I get to meet some of our finest producers. I am also regularly featured as a food expert on BBC Radio Lincolnshire and Humberside.
The cooking on my blog features many of our local produce and is as seasonal as can be. I love sharing my recipes and ideas with you and hopefully the result is that you eat and of course, enjoy!
