Summary of where the Chef’s cuisine is inspired from and how he/she goes about expressing it

As a chalet and Super Yacht chef my cuisine has been inspired from all over the world. Most of my cooking experience has been based in the Alps or around the Mediterranean, therefore the ingredients and cooking styles from these regions appear frequently in my menu's and form the main basis of my cooking. I also enjoy Modern Day British Cuisine and having grown up there and trained there as a chef this is a theme I am also very familiar with and love to present at the dinner table. Asian, Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines also regularly appear in my menu's, because after all who doesn't enjoy a good curry or slow-cooked Peking duck? In a nutshell, I love to cook meals in a traditional way with maximum flavour and creative presentation, adding a modern twist on top, for everyone to enjoy.

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

My Dad has always been a brilliant cook and having grown up in a household where dinner parties where held regularly I came to learn about food at an early age. As a teenager I worked in various restaurant and café kitchens and came to take my first chalet job at the age of 19. Since then I progressed from one chalet chef job to another until I decided to go to Ashburton Cookery School to gain a Chef's Diploma. Since then I have found myself working on Super Yachts but occasionally like to swap the sea for the mountains to work in chalets again.

    I booked Chef Laura to provide a three course celebration dinner for 15 people and was delighted with the results. All the courses were outstanding. I was particularly struck about how calm and organised Laura was throughout the whole event which in turn enabled me to fully relax and enjoy the special occasion with my guests. I would definitely book Laura again.

    From start to finish this was a wonderful experience. Laura is a very talented chef who explained every dish in fine detail and even persuaded me to try things I would not normally have eaten. I would fully recommend her and will look to book her again if I get the chance.

    We had the Winter Dinner Party Menu and it was superb. My favourite was the lamb dish, but the presentation of the desert was amazing. A truly magical evening with a brilliant, talented chef. Well done Laura, hope you do really well.

    Laura cooked a 3 course meal for us that included a risotto starter, lamb for the main and one of the most visually impressive starters I have ever had. The risotto and lamb 2-ways were both delicious and presented in an attractive and modern way. However, the dessert, which consisted of brownies, profiteroles, chocolate whisky, chocolate ice cream balls and fruit, was definitely the winning course! Each individual element was delicious and they sat well together but the presentation on a chocolate snowboard was very well thought out and elevated the food from a excellent course to a show stopper. I would certainly recommend Laura and will be booking her again.
