Get to know me better
Young, enthusiastic chef with a passion for quality local produce and beautiful, 'Instagrammable' presentation.
I am a young private chef based in Newcastle-Upon -Tyne. My culinary career began as a chalet cook in the French Alps, having completed a cookery course at Orchards School of Cookery, and I have since worked as a private chef in Scotland, cooking in large hunting lodges, private households and holiday accommodation. This involved preparing dinner party-style food, canapés, cooked breakfasts and lunches, and daily baking. I'm friendly and approachable, always working with a smile, but I am also professional and efficient, maintaining a clean and organised kitchen at all times. I enjoy creating bespoke menus that suit the individual taste of each client and I especially enjoy preparing 'Instagrammable' displays of high-end canapés, inspired by flavours from around the world.
For me, cooking is...
My passion, my favourite time of day and a way to share or create magical memories for fellow foodies.
I learned to cook at...
Firstly, at home – my mum is a fantastic cook – and then at Orchards Cookery School. I've also learnt on the job and I follow the latest food trends.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Clodagh McKenna, Claire McDonald, Ottolenghi, The Grazer (chef at the Cook House)... too many to mention.
A cooking secret...
Use the finest and freshest ingredients, sourced locally where possible, and make the plate look like a piece of art.
