Get to know me better
I'm a young disciplined chef with a drive for perfection and big flavours.
I am an ambitious young chef with a passion for hospitality and good food. I'm looking for the opportunity to share my cooking with other foodies that share my passion for good quality cuisine.
After enjoying many years as an elite cyclist, four years ago I decided to dedicate myself to becoming a chef. I was grateful to be offered a role in one of Edinburgh’s most renowned restaurants, specialising mainly in French style fine dining. I thoroughly enjoyed committing to the career and becoming enveloped by the craft. I felt very natural in the kitchen and quickly worked my way through all the sections, absorbing everything and loving every minute.
At the end of 2019 I wanted to challenge myself and moved to France as a private chef for one of the most prestigious chalet companies in France. This meant
more pressure and responsibility that I relished. I enjoyed much praise and returned with a stellar reputation.
After a quiet year due to the Covid 19 pandemic I am itching to serve good food again and continue to develop myself as a chef. I pride myself on being reliable,
honest and hardworking. Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile.
For me, cooking is...
A reason to bring together friends and bond new relationships. A reason to become excited and creative. Satisfaction in seeking perfection.
I learned to cook at...
Purslane restaurant, Edinburgh. Under the guidance of Chef Paul Gunning, in a small kitchen the size of a cupboard, bad habits were always spotted
A role model in the kitchen is...
Yotam Ottolenghi, for his originality and flavour packed dishes
A cooking secret...
Attention to detail and perfectionism.

Chef Jack's reviews
Jack was a fantastic private Chef for our small wedding celebration. He was extremely flexible and didn’t rush us while the photos were being taken. The food was fantastic and he left the place absolutely immaculate. I would highly recommend him. Thanks Jack!

This was a birthday dinner booked for myself and my partner and it was perfect! The chef arrived on time and the food was exquisite. He was extremely polite and cleaned up once the meal was done. An excellent fine dining experience.
