Chris trained as a chef in the late 80s, working in various restaurants home & abroad throughout the 90s. But it was becoming a finalist on ITVs Rosemary Shragers School for Cooks that he says really kickstarted his culinary journey. Having ran his own catering company he spent several years working as project manager for Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food teaching people to cook healthy nutritious meals from scratch.
Having left there, I went to work directly on a project for Jamie in partnership with FareShare and Tesco. Going on to work directly on a project for Jamie in partnership with FareShare and Tesco, delivering cookery demonstrations around the UK teaching community cooks how to utilise surplus food to provide nutritious meals.
Having taught 1000 community cooks, the project ended, and I am now working directly for FareShare supporting charity food members with recipes and ideas on using surplus produce to feed those most in need.
