Having spent a lifetime in the hotel and catering industry, Yorkshire born and bred Nigel has worked at some of the UK’s biggest and busiest hotels. He also spent time overseas at the highly acclaimed French cookery school Ecole Le Notre where he picked up a wealth of experience and knowledge in areas of specialist patisserie work.
In 2007 Nigel filmed and produced a set of three cookery DVDs and launched his fabulous cookery academy in North Lincolnshire. Nigel’s academy is said to be Lincolnshire’s finest cookery school.
n between running courses at his cookery academy, Nigel regularly demonstrates at top food festivals and events throughout the UK. Amongst some of his more memorable achievements he was featured in a celebrity chef calendar (with his clothes on!) and over the years has catered for Nelson Mandela and Princess Anne.
In January 2012 Nigel became a regular recipe columnist for The Lady Magazine online.
2013 saw Nigel front a nine part foodie TV series, Haloodies. The show was broadcast to 136 countries around the world.
2014/15 was a busy year with delivering courses at the academy along with Nigel’s many food festival appearances across the UK and his commitment to charities that included running pop-up restaurants for CASE a Hull based charity that runs a disabled adults learning centre.
2015 – the year that Nigel headed up the national campaign #EatWhatYouLike, a campaign that raised an eyebrow or two but gained much support from the nation as the campaign message was and is, eat what you like and live life to the full, everything in moderation is good for you.
