Get to know me better
Classically french trained but worked in double A rosette British establishment and now a senior chef at a middle eastern restaurant.
I am a Corden Bleu classically trained chef based in Maida Vale. I enjoy creating food for families who are keen to make memories. With personal experience with food intolerances so am knowledgable with alternative ingredients and with a variety of suppliers who can get what I need! I have a design background based in fashion so I am a very creative individual and well traveled person having lived in San Francisco, Hong Kong and London during my 20's. I am extremely driven and will work very hard to create beautiful, seasonal food for any occasions whether it be meal prep throughout the week or preparing food in advance. I am also keen on farm to table aspect of cooking and having the knowledge of how produce is grown and sharing it with people. I am also very keen on involving children within cooking. Children are always so interested so why not involve them, teach them and encourage them to try new and wonderful foods!
For me, cooking is...
Where all my happiest memories come from. My father was a chef and so was my uncle. I have been around my whole life and simple love it.
I learned to cook at...
Tante Maire Culinary Academy.
A role model in the kitchen is...
My family. My family are keen gardeners, especially my father when it comes to growing produce for us to use. Working out new recipes together daily.
A cooking secret...
Seasonality is key and learning how to adapt quickly to cater for a family.
