Get to know me better
Presentable, enthusiastic, full of energy and love serving a great plate of food
I’m a professional chef with 26 years experience, working from a minimum 2 rosette up to 1 star Michelin standard. Lords of the manor being one of them. I love fresh seasonal produce, curing and smoking my own goods, using simple ingredients and making them great. I am happy to work in any environment that is clean and tidy unless we’re outside creating our own fire in the woods, hot smoking some salmon on oak, spit roasting chicken, lamb or beef. I am extremely happy to tailor a menu to the clients needs, please feel free to send me as much information as possible, so I can create that menu for your special occasion.
Just an update, if my services are required to cook for you and your guests, please could this be confirmed within 3 days of menu being sent, I have lots of requests and many duplicate dates. Therefore if no confirmation is received within 3 days, I will possibly have to cancel if no confirmation is received to free up dates. Thank you
Thank you for asking for a menu and I do hope I get to cook you some delicious food soon
For me, cooking is...
Is all I know, it’s a passion not just a hobby, you need to learn where the food has come from and understand it before cooking it
I learned to cook at...
Home, college and work
A role model in the kitchen is...
Anton mossiman for his way of teaching and legendary status
A cooking secret...
Keep a calm temperament, always use seasonal produce and respect everyone around you

Reviews about Dean
From initial contact to the end of our meal, our expectations were exceeded! Dean and Gemma arrived promptly and set to work to create a celebratory meal for our family that was both beautifully presented and, maybe more importantly, tasted delicious. The portions were of more than ample size, with plenty left over to consume the next day. On leaving our home, the kitchen was left clean and tidy. Thank you very much!

Chef Dean had the most appealing menu to celebrate my husband's birthday with friends (and our 4 children.) Not only did having allergies not affect the menu, he was incredibly kind in accomodating a last minute change. The children had a gorgeous roast chicken dinner with all the veg, and our beef wellington main was simply divine.
We will certainly be in touch for our next visit!

We were 22 for lunch, celebrating two birthdays, and Dean & his staff coped very well. The beef wellington was very tender and served medium rare as requested. Equally, the sticky toffee pudding was delicious and the cheese boards were devoured over several hours!

I don't normally leave reviews, but the experience (and food) was first class. Our chef Dean was excellent, the food was brilliant, and he left the kitchen spotless.
