Get to know me better
I love to feed people
I have been a chef for more than 15 years. I opened my first restaurant in 2004, and served delicious home cooking style meals made from fresh ingredients in my Indoor Playcentre.
I have had Streetfood stalls,, served fresh food at festivals and farmers’ markets as Tastes of the Nile, got a 5* rating on TripAdvisor for the food from my eatery of the same name. I have worked as a chef at some of London’s most iconic venues. I have also cooked for many private clients in London, and overseas, providing catering for parties, canapé receptions, wakes and picnics. I have a particular interest in cooking delicious, balanced meals for people on restricted diets due to allergies and intolerances.
I am now living in beautiful Bedfordshire, and am eager to share my love of good food and my wealth of culinary experience with people in this area.
