First and foremost a chef, I am also a restaurateur and food writer. I have also appeared on screen a number of times, as a regular on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen and numerous other cooking and lifestyle shows. I also pride myself on being a mentor to young chefs starting in the business, both at my own restaurants and also through my work with the Academy of Culinary Arts. Being born into a family of great cooks and food lovers, a career as a chef was almost inevitable and I began my career in the frenetic kitchen of the legendary Claridges Hotel at the age of 16.
