Get to know me better
Hi! I have been working in the business of making people happy through food for 8 years now. The first half of that time was spent with guests as I worked front of house and as a manager at one of Jamie Oliver's restaurants in London as well as part of a pop up restaurant in Islington. Finally realising that I actually wanted to make a profession out of the cooking too I have spent the past few years working as a personal chef on Sailing Yachts. I love my line of work because I get to interact with people, finding out what they really love to eat or wish they could but don't know how to prepare it. I speak to them about their intolerances and find ways to cook up their favourite food using alternative ingredients so that they can enjoy it without the consequences.
I have recently taken a break from working on yachts in order to take up two internships, both in 2 Michelin starred kitchens. The first was at San Francisco's Coi and the second at renowned restaurant Noma in Copenhagen. They both opened my eyes up to different techniques and taught me the refinements needed for such high standards of cooking.
For me, cooking is...
Enjoyment . Cooking and entertaining is my way of bringing smiles to peoples faces; giving guests a talking point over which to relax.
I learned to cook at...
Home. Plain and simply I learnt what I know through my persistent reading and practice.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Every home cook who has ever made their family come together and laugh and smile over their cooking.
A cooking secret...
Having patience and finding the joy of even simple activities like chopping vegetables. Taking care and pride in what you are cooking.
