FIVE MINUTES WITH: Chef Stephen Terry of The Hardwick

First published in Columnists

If you had to be stuck in a lift with someone, who would it be and why?

My wife Jo and kids Olivia, Phoebe and Finlay because I never spend enough time with them!

What is your biggest fear?

Not being around to see my kids grow up.

Do you have any superstitions?

No superstitions but a light dusting of OCD which does involve a lot of tidying up and the turning off of lights, power switches etc.

If you could have only one song on your iPod what would it be and why?

Scenes From An Italian Restaurant by Billy Joel. Love Billy Joel, Love the arrangement. Great lyrics.

What’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought, not including property?

My wife’s engagement ring!!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

It’s a toss-up between ‘You cannot please all of the people all of the time so don’t beat yourself up trying to’ and ‘To know the value of something is greater than to know the price’.

What’s your indulgence?

A Marlboro Light and a glass of ice-cold Sauvignon Blanc after a busy night’s service.

What item could you not live without?

Like most people today I rely on my phone too much so I would probably struggle without it, although I wouldn’t go as far to say that I couldn’t live without it.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be and why?

I would like a greater ability to relax and not be so conscientious and uptight about too many things.

Where are you next going on holiday?

We are having a week at the end of August in St David’s with Jo’s two sisters, their husbands and each of their three children. Can’t wait.
