Get to know me better
Traditional cook with a modern twist
My professional cooking career began in 2004 when I started work in a high end French ski chalet. I was there for 10 years. In 2014 I moved back to the UK since when I have worked as a private chef in homes, shooting and fishing lodges. I have also worked in professional kitchens. My style of cooking is traditional with a modern twist. I like big flavours and beautiful presentation without pretension. I particularly like the freshness of Pacific Rim cooking. My clients describe me as flexible and accommodating whilst remaining cheerful. I love what I do.
For me, cooking is...
What I do best. Its therapeutic. Nurturing. An outlet for creativity.
I learned to cook at...
my mother's side. By creating many disasters. Learning how to recover from them. Working with professional chefs and soaking up all their knowledge.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Bill Granger, Donna Hay
