Get to know me better

International culinary expert with 20 years experience in catering, fine dining and teaching culinary arts.

Well traveled and highly experienced chef with 20 years in the industry. From Michelin starred restaurants in France, to stints in Peru and Ecuador in South America. Proficient in many styles of cooking, with a focus on quality ingredients and outstanding flavours. Expert in wine pairings, whisky pairings and craft beer food combinations. Have cooked for celebrities and dignitaries in formal and informal settings.

I feel comfortable cooking in many different styles, adopting regional methods from all over the world, while tilting naturally towards solid french technique. I love quality ingredients, natural yet distinctive flavours and a little bit of spice.,

For me, cooking is a form of artistic expression that speaks of terroir and community, with a healthy splash of technique and science.
