Born Isle of Wight, UK, studied stage management in London, and got an amazing job for a couple of years, travelling a lot. Then, after 6 months in Rome, settled for Spain (Catalunya) for 23 years. 3 children, now all over 23. Spanish hubby. We've been in Ventnor, Isle of Wight, for the last 12 years, opened a Spanish restaurant (eltorocontento.co.uk) but the feet are itching like crazy, so we got out of the lease, and started again! We want to be somewhere else, open to all possibilities, we just love cooking, travelling, beaches with palm trees, sunshine, being outdoors, boats, good food and wine...
Serafin is very Spanish (!), an excellent cook, hardworking and polite. His English is slowly improving, but it's a lot better when I'm not around! Before we came to England he drove car transporters all over Europe (he's a great driver). We've now bought a little hovel in Jaén, and it turns out we've got a cave too, so we need to learn how to renovate this! We also need to learn about planting vegetables, looking after chickens, and who knows - a donkey could be useful when you intend to retire to the top of a mountain village and the bar is at the bottom !!! After working the summer of 2016 in Skyros, Greece, as a chef for Skyros Holidays, Lorraine is convinced summers should be spent on Greek islands, and winters are for workaway adventures! Summer 2017 we have been working on the Costa Brava, winter was spent as Chalet host and chef in La Tania. Now, summer 2018, and 2019, Serafin is driving a bus in Spain and Lorraine is cooking in Kalamaki, Zakynthos.
