About Me

Wealth and experience of over 23 years; cooked professionally in 8 countries, Michelin stars, flight kitchens, cruise liner, vineyard restaurant,  TV & Radio appearances, guest lecturer, coach for Team India; dare I say - I certainly qualify as an industry expert. 

I have built my expertise on knowledge, experience & toil;  I have a thorough understanding of textures/temperatures/flavours/presentations - but more importantly 'what a guest wants' and how to make a successful venture based on its market segment and positioning.

I have had the great fortune of working with some truly inspiring chefs and learning the craft by hands on experiences and trial & error.

 

Being a great chef is driven by passion and requires a lot of commitment, tenacity and perseverance; which I advocate and demonstrate.

I believe in the power of working together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. My raison d'être is to create a legacy in the restaurant world and inspire budding cooks. 

I am also a keen runner and try to finish at least 3 marathons every year. Endurance sports not only builds you physically but it is a great training of the mind too. It teaches you to train well, never quit and dig into your inner strength - which I apply in other aspects of my life too!

This sums up my philosophy as a chef

Unique | Creative | Simple yet complex | Precise | Out of the box | Ingredient led | Technique | Familiar yet different
