Is it Steve Davis? I know he's into poker, could he have been mentioned on "snooker loopy" by Chas and Dave? not sure about a cookbook though.

Well done Rich :tup:

I had the pleasure of meeting Steve Davis when i was managing one of the departments at HMV in Manchester during the 80's. Steve is a lovely friendly fella with a dry wit, we must have talked for a good twenty minutes. He loved soul music at the time, he bought a couple of Randy Crawford cassettes for the drive back home to London

I wasn't a big fan of his when he came on the scene as he seemed rather dull, but he's one of those who's improved with age and I like to listen to him when he's one of the summarisers at the snooker. I'll lookout for his cookbook too!!!
