<P>The host of Take Home Chef, Curtis Stone, reveals the secrets of a good meal</P><P><STRONG>What\'s your cooking philosophy?<BR></STRONG>Respect the ingredients. If you respect an ingredient, you take your time with it and you utilise everything that you can from it. </P><P><STRONG>Do you think anyone can be a good cook?<BR></STRONG>Definitely. You don\'t have to be a good chef to put good food on the table. If you start with good quality ingredients and treat them simply, you end up with a beautiful product. </P><P><STRONG>What are your must-haves in the kitchen?<BR></STRONG>If you have one good piece of everything – a good knife, a decent chopping board and a good pan – you can cook anything. </P><P><STRONG>What\'s your secret to staying fit and eating all this delicious food everyday?<BR></STRONG>I love being out and about. If I have a day off, I\'ll never spend it watching television. I\'ll be out walking and hiking. I love being in the ocean – I surf three to four times a week. </P><P><STRONG>What are the three ingredients you can\'t live without?<BR></STRONG>Dark chocolate, seafood and fresh herbs. </P><P><STRONG>If there\'s a cook-off between you and Jamie Oliver, who will win?<BR></STRONG>Jamie and I come from different worlds in the kitchen. My training was a lot more formal than Jamie\'s. Jamie stopped cooking in the kitchen when he was around 22 or 23. I was trying to be diplomatic, but of course I\'ll beat him!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </P>
