How did the Chef learn how to cook and what is his story?

Since childhood I have always been interested in food and cooking, but due to a severe intolerance to cheese I chose a career in engineering instead of cooking. Since moving to London in 98 however I began to cook until taking part in Masterchef 2012, I have since then had the pleasure to do work experience in many restaurant kitchens including a few that hold 1 and 2 michelin stars.

    Alec did a great job and went beyond what he was required to do. The food was excellent, well presented and the quantity satisfied everyone. He came across as highly professional in every way.

    Firstly from myside I would like to commend Rosie(from chefxchange) in customer service, delivery of all the requested in a small amount of leadtime and finding a great chef in alec. The feedback from the ladies that attended the meal where very favourable. They found him very attentive with great attention to detail, approachable, very professional and to top it off they loved the high standard of food served. Being a director of a events and marketing agency the endoresment passed to me via the guest mean I would be keen to use Alec and CXC service again for private and professional engagements to suit. Thanks x
