Hooray, another Guest Blog post! This time it’s from an inspiring young man – take it away, Seb!
A BIT ABOUT SEB
‘Hi, my name is Seb Holmes and I am currently a third year Journalism student at Kingston University. Prior to becoming an undergraduate I worked as a chef in kitchens around Oxfordshire, where I grew up. Cheffing aside, I have just loved food since I can remember; I have always wanted to know how things are made before they get put on my plate.
In this blog I aim to share my story with fellow students, to show them how my flat mates and I manage to eat amazing food every day, for less than the price of a pint!
With this background in cooking I was shocked to see what some students are willing to spend their money on for dinner. I’ve heard people complain about the price of food, when they are spending £40 a week on microwave meals. It just didn’t make sense to me how this is possible. How can such an educated sector of society waste so much money unnecessarily? In an effort to stop this madness, and to save my flat mates some money I offered to cook for us all if we chipped in the money. Since then, we’ve continued to do this and a microwave meal has not been seen in our house for a few years now!
