Jon Ingram: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

The Steeple Times asks Blue Boar Smokehouse chef Jon Ingram: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

 

The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

Seasonality, traceability and simplicity.

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple Stupid.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2013?

Green peppers and bad personal hygiene. They both stink.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

My family.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

I don’t have any wealth. I’m a chef

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

Overpaid people that gamble with our money and still get a bonus.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“Jambalaya”: I worked with a chef who had it on the menu. I think it is the worst dish I have ever seen or tasted.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I donate to Cancer Research every month.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

I love my phone. It goes everywhere I do, except for my days off. Then, it generally sits there until I go back to work.

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

It would be a real eclectic mix of people such as Tommy Cooper, Burt Bacharach, Marco Pierre White, Jonnie Boer, Dynamo, Lionel Richie, Frank Bruno, Russell Howard, my kids and most importantly my wife.

 

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

Blue Boar ribs to start and a huge roast beef dinner and chocolate

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

Pubs open at 11am.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

Tea: white peony.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

I’m normally cooking for them, so anyones’.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

My wife.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

A croissant stuffed with a Cumberland sausage.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

My motto: K.I.S.S.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

A Morgan: a small fish in a big pond.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

I’ve got a 100-metre swimming badge.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

If I had one, I would put my 100-metre swimming badge on it along with a picture of my wife and kids. I would most definitely not put a carriage clock on it though.
