Get to know me better
I’m a fun and confident person with great people skills and passionate about my food
I’m an experienced chef with 30 years experience. I have worked for several contract catering companies over the years working my way up executive chef at a local caterer. I’m confident , talkative and I enjoy cooking in front of guests. I have worked for events caterers in the past in London cooking for the rich and famous from Simon Cowell to the royals. I run a live cookery school on Facebook and I’m also producing cooking vlogs on YouTube. I love the casual dining experience as well as top end and smart plated bistro style dishes.
For me, cooking is...
About taste, clean flavours and using fresh produce. Understanding how dishes work and knowing that you will always be judged by your last meal.
I learned to cook at...
Waltham Forest college as part of a four year apprenticeship.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Every chef I’ve ever worked with as you always pick up a new technique from every single one of them .
A cooking secret...
Look after your ingredients and they will look after you. Stay organised, be calm and always cook well .
