About ‘1 Dish 4 The Road’

By day, I’m Aaron, and I work as a doctor in the NHS. But by night..

..I’m still working as a doctor in the NHS ( – well on some days at least!). But at all other waking (and possibly non-waking) times, I’m a dedicated lover of writing and all things food.

For me, food isn’t just a combination of carbs, fats, and proteins on a plate, it’s a reflection of ourselves, our families, our communities, our identities, our values, our economics, our politics, and our environment. There’s a story behind every dish we eat, and my blog – 1 Dish 4 The Road – aims to explore this, dish by dish.

The blog has evolved, and over time I’ve discovered that I really love mixing it up a bit, fusing food-writing with various other genres. But whether I’m using fiction, poetry, travel or humour – or whether I’m reflecting on religion, diversity, politics or ecology – food remains firmly at the heart of this blog.

I count myself lucky to live in London: its many communities make it a wonderfully diverse foodscape, from its cafes and restaurants, to its markets and stores. So whether it’s about eating in or out, do come and join me for the ride. Hope you enjoy!..
