How did you start your journey?
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.
Where is your cuisine inspired from?
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.
