Get to know me better
I enjoy creating meals, based on a variety of cuisines, in an intimate setting
I worked in the restaurant industry for many years, initially front of house, and then transitioning to back of house. I have been catering and teaching cooking classes for the past several years and working as a private chef for a little over a year now which I really enjoy. I particularly like working with clients to create menus that combine their favourite ingredients with ideas they may not have considered. I’m always happy to tailor dishes to specific dietary requirements. It gives me great pleasure to help make someone’s special occasion truly memorable.
For me, cooking is...
Always a pleasure and a wonderful creative outlet
I learned to cook at...
I’ve worked in kitchens for over 30 years as well as taking some formal training at George Brown
A role model in the kitchen is...
Currently, Yottam Ottolenghi for his creative approach to Middle Eastern dishes and use of fresh ingredients
A cooking secret...
A calm demeanour and a sense of humour. Stress and food don’t mix well, in my opinion.
