Get to know me better
Passionate and committed to producing amazing food.
I am 37, I have been a chef for 20 years. I started as a pot washer in a local Italian restaurant, got pulled in to help on the starters on Saturday night and the rest is history. I've worked in a variety or kitchens across the country and I have consistently worked at 3 AA rosette/Michelin star. Holding senior positions at Hell Bay Hotel, Linthwaite House Hotel and most recently as head of fine dining at Royal Ascot.
For me, cooking is...
all about having the freedom to express myself though my food.
I learned to cook at...
a number of different places, namely Hell Bay Hotel in the Isles of Scilly, Linthwaite House Hotel in the Lakes and Driftwood Hotel in Cornwall.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Daniel Clifford, Tom Aikens and Christian Bau.
A cooking secret...
Using the very best ingredient's available and doing the every minimum to them to allow there true flavour to shine through.
