The fire inside: eating at Auckland’s most remarkable restaurant

Last thing at night, that is, after service, after cleaning up, after winding down, when he’s home, so maybe at 2am, Ed might eat some pot noodles. He gets the starter going for the next round. Then he goes to bed.

One day I arranged to meet Ed and he was 40 minutes late, because he’d been at the barber having his head shaved and his beard trimmed and he was so tired he fell asleep. Still, he looked good.
