Who is Chef

I am Jerry Pank, aka Chef, the founder, funder, editor and creator of Cookipedia. I am an extremely enthusiastic cook, however I am a computer programmer, not a Chef! I chose the pseudonym because it seemed like a good idea at the time. It feels a bit pretentious now but it's too late to change, so my apologies to real chefs.

Favourite chefs

  • Jamie Oliver - I love his style of cooking, enthusiasm and method of presentation. He may be a mockney, so what!
  • Rick Stein - When he's cooking in some town square on a Gaz stove, loaded with wine!
  • Antonio Carluccio - I love his rustic style of cooking and passion for local ingredients.

Favourite sport

An ex white-water canoeist, surfer, windsurfer and skier, I now enjoy retirement in the Norfolk countryside.

Favourite musicians

Music is my life blood. Period.

All-time favourite: Pat Metheny

Where I work

I am retired now, though I dabble with the odd bit of Perl code for fun and financial gain.
