Get to know me better

Restaurant quality food, at your dinner table - A culinary exploration through extraordinary cuisine, creating unforgettable guest experiences.

I am a professionally trained, experienced chef of 10 years from Shrewsbury, UK. I'm passionate about food and take a dynamic and innovative approach to my work in a highly organised manner.

My ultimate goal is to continue cooking food that I love and share my passion with others. To this end, I am always evolving, learning and tasting to keep things moving forward.

I have a natural curiosity for food, which has fuelled my ambition from a very young age.

I studied at Shrewsbury College of Arts & Technology for three years, gaining a City & Guilds Level 3 Advanced Professional Chefs Diploma.

For several years I worked in the up and coming foodie scene around the town in award-winning AA rosette restaurants. Wishing to expand my culinary horizons, I began working in some of the most prestigious ski resorts around Europe and the USA.

In more recent years, 6 to be precise; I have been working aboard both private and chartered Superyachts for the rich and famous all over the world on vessels ranging from 30 to 116 meters long.

I can completely customise your menu, based on your preferences. I am extremely well-travelled and have a strong knowledge of many cuisines including French, modern British, Thai, and more recently Japanese following a months foodie tour of Japan in 2019, including an intensive 2-week sushi & sashimi course at Tokyo sushi academy.

Let me, Karl Hignett takes you on a culinary exploration through extraordinary cuisine. With a passion for food, I have a flair for igniting the senses using simple, fresh ingredients with a twist.
