Get to know me better
26 years in the kitchen and still passionate about food, able to show and learn every day!
I am an enthusiastic and flexible individual with several years experience in hospitality, more accurately at the BOH as Chef, on several levels.I am committed to excellence with maximum guest satisfaction.
Hospitality service is not only a profession for me, I have passion for quality foods and sophisticated service, with a strong eye for details. Also keeping myself well trained and informed about the recent culinary methods, plating systems, decorations, and trying to learn about new methods, ingredients, attending on workshops and other events could reasonably sharpening my skill set.
I do not mind working in different circumstances: I love challenges; to prove myself in a busy environment and achieving the possible maximum quality of service within.
I wish to further continue my efficient service where my experience and human qualities will be the part of a dynamic company, or individually as private chef or sole trader. Currently I own my family catering business: The Meadowlands Catering Ltd, based in Fife, Scotland.
For me, cooking is...
My life. Apart from my family, the second most important thing for me. Cooking is a lifestyle, you have to born with it.
I learned to cook at...
BHMS Switzerland, Gerand Hotels Group, Pelion Hotel Agelis, Kara Nela, Coral Sea Resort Sharm el Sheik, City Hotel Q Tokyo, The Wild Fox San Francisco
A role model in the kitchen is...
Paul Bocquse, Adrian Ferra, Tom Kitchin, Anthony Bourdain
A cooking secret...
There's no secrets. Cooking is an art, not a job. You are the artist, the ingredients are the instruments. Play!!!
