About Chef Crunchy

For quite a long time now I have been known as ‘Crouchy’. And if not that, Admiral Crouch, General Crouch and even Lord Crouch. For a day I genuinely got to be Captain Crouch – probably the best day so far in my quarter century of existence.

One day someone somehow mislabeled me as James Crunch on a work email. Of course they did! And predictably that has worked its way in amongst the array of honorific titles I seem to have accumulated. When it came to naming my blog, naturally I had to pay homage to one of the most underrated of my nicknames.

I’m an amateur home cook with a faux preference for haute cuisine hiding the fact that I like nothing more than to retreat into basic English cooking.
