Get to know me better
A private chef with bags of motivation towards food
My name is Oliver Charnock and I would like to introduce myself. I am a self motivated chef with over 17 years experience working within the food industry. I started washing the dishes in a local pub when I was 14 and ever since my first day, I fell in love with the way food was handled and the environment that I was working in. Since then I have travelled far and wide to gain experience in all sections of the kitchen.
I am most comfortable in a leadership position and I am very proud to tell people that I work as a chef for a living.
I enjoy the very basics of good food, from the raw ingredients to the final product, and pride myself in always looking for new and exciting ways to go the extra mile to challenge everyone's pallet. From fine dining to school meals I strive for perfection and I have a particular interest in vegetarian cuisine.
Four years ago I decided to start my own company, Two Simmering Pans, which allows me to move around the country cooking in a wide range of establishments, from private dinner party's to larger scale events.
Each job I pursue gives my confidence as a chef, a boost if you like, and I love fine tuning kitchens to maximize the potential whilst creating a safe working environment.
I would like to say I could build a house from the ground up, but I can't, however I am proud to say I can turn eggs and flour in to something everyone can enjoy
