Demi Chef De Partie


My Approach

While at Rudding Park I have pushed for opportunities resulting in a variety of cookery demonstrations, my own food podcast ‘The Harrogate Food Show’ and many public events representing the Hotel.

With a focus on cookery competitions in 2019, I was a finalist for the Young Chef Young Waiter competition. Even though this was a career changing achievement, I still have the desire enter as many competitions as possible to maintain that focus.

Working in many other kitchens in my free time, has greatly strengthened my knowledge of cookery. Since 2016 I have spent as much time as I can working with Thierry Dumouchel at Dumouchel Patisserie, to master French pastry and baking. I have spent a considerable amount of time working with the Atul Kochhar Restaurant Group, to learn more about Indian cuisine and widen my knowledge. My ambitions for the future are to build my experiences in classical french and Asian cuisine as these are where my passions lie. This will be done by working around the world and gaining new experiences.
