Get to know me better
Very experienced chef used to catering for highly demanding clients meeting their every need.
I am a professional chef with vast experience in the UK at top restaurants in London and abroad. The French alps I have ran a five star hotel as head chef and most recently been the sous chef for over a year on the third highest charter priced yacht in the world. I believe travelling and working in different environments has made me able to adapt and deliver in whatever situation is thrown at me.
For me, cooking is...
Everything. It’s my passion and I love the job I do which is very grateful as I don’t know many others with job satisfaction like I get from mine.
I learned to cook at...
I learned as an apprentice 11 years ago ina Castro pub. I then continued my development at brimming and price where I climbed the ranks to CDP quickly
A role model in the kitchen is...
Definitely Gordon Ramsay..... Not so much for his anger which makes for great TV viewing but more for his raw passion of food. He’s a perfectionist.
A cooking secret...
Using the freshest and most organic ingredients possible without messing around with them too much. I prefer to emphasise on the quality.
