What’s your job? What do you love about it?
I am in charge of record management and adjudications at the London HQ of Guinness World Records. I love our record holders and the sheer variety of my daily work. I love to witness the moments when records get broken, to see how the faces of our record holders change when we announce the success of an attempt. It is often emotional and I love being part of it, it has fed my enthusiasm for the past 6 years.
Why do you like Invite For A Bite?
My team and I travel a lot both in the UK and abroad to adjudicate record attempts. So the idea of a website where I could find another woman to have dinner with sounds great. Often after a long day I prefer to go to bed without dinner to having dinner in a restaurant on my own or resort to ordering room service. I will definitely use it myself and recommend it to my colleagues.
What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten?
I don’t count pigeon and frog legs, I had crocodile soup and fried snake, both in China.
What’s your guiltiest food pleasure?
My mum’s cream caramel, the meringue roulade served at the Marshmallow Restaurant & Tea Rooms in Moreton in Marsh, Brazilian cheese bread, I could go on!
Which women, living now or in the past, would you invite to an ifab dinner party?
Harper Lee, Mother Teresa, my grandma and Hillary Clinton.
What food from your country do you miss the most?(Andrea is from Hungary)
The great thing about London is that you can get hold of everything. Except sour cherries. I miss sour cherries.
Name a country you’ve visited whose food you love. What not-to-be-missed dish should people eat there?
The best food I had abroad was in the Middle East, I love mezzes and their fresh herby salads, and in China, Cantonese food is my second favourite.
If you could be in one place right now, where would it be? Why?
On a sunny beach in Brazil, slurping a cocktail. Why? It’s obvious, I think!
Nosy, we know, but what are you having for dinner tonight?
I am cooking a vegetable jalfrezi tonight. Mmmmmh
