Stonyhurst College â€“ Sat 22nd April @ 11am & 2pm
Iâ€™ve always loved to cook and started at the tender age of 6 by helping my parents with the Sunday roast! At 8 I was trusted to make the dish alone and a few years later I enrolled to study my Level 3 NVQ Catering at Yale college.
Throughout my career, Iâ€™ve worked in a range of establishments from the college coffee shop, to British Gastro Pubs and Rosette restaurants such as Bryn Tyrch and Newbridge on Usk. Each role has brought me closer to my current position as Head Chef at The Coach House Inn in Chester and my career highlight of being named as The Best Pub in Chester in 2016.
My cooking style is influenced largely by chef Tom Kerridge and Iâ€™d say the best part of my job is working with local produce to create British dishes with an Italian and American twist.
