Peckham Kitchen

Food adventures in a Peckham kitchen


About Me

Hi. I’m Simon Baker. Si for short.

I love to cook and I cook with love. I like to think my food comes with a hug. I love to feed people. What can I say, I’m a feeder. For me there’s no greater joy than cooking for peeps and eating together. Food, conversation, and friendship is food for the soul.

I enjoy cooking so much I jumped off my hamster wheel to train as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu. Now I’m thinking maybe a supper club comes next. I’m an unrepentant carnivore, keen charcutier and wannabe butcher. I cook from scratch, and I care about food provenance and animal welfare.

I’m a Welshman living life between London Peckham and Vienna. I’m a seasoned Oktoberfester with all the leather accoutrements. I like my Austrian and German beers. I’m a Purity Law fanboy. Whatever—beer, wine, cocktails—they all work with food.
