Get to know me better
Very passionate, people person. hungry to please, outgoing, love to cook and entertain.
Hi, I am David and I am a personal/private chef for dinner parties or home cooking.
I am 32 years old and absolutely love cooking and just eating food in general.
I am mostly a self taught chef who trained in my uncles AA rosette restaurant in the highlands of Scotland.
I have taught cookery in a high school and worked as a 1:1 cooking tutor
I also love to cook for my family, other peoples families and most importantly watch people eat my food!!
For me, cooking is...
EVERYTHING. The produce to the final plate is a journey and I love turning what the earth has to give us into a well balanced, good looking plate.
I learned to cook at...
The Auld Kirk in Ballater, Scotland and at home ( self taught)
A role model in the kitchen is...
Michel Roux Jnr/ Marco Pierre White/ My uncle/ Paul Ainsworth
A cooking secret...
I like to keep that secret............... but I love giving english dishes a french twist!!
