I HAVE WORKED FOR MANY YEARS AS A LIVE IN CHEF IN LARGE PRIVATE HOUSES IN THE UK AND FRANCE. I NOW LIVE ON ANGLESEY AND WORK FREELANCE AS A PRIVATE CHEF AND OUTSIDE CATERER.
I come from a family where food was important, not just the fuel for life, but the stuff of celebration and solace. We were always trying new things, reviving old recipes and experimenting. I studied Hotel Management, but quickly realised that it was the creativity of the kitchen where my true passion lay.
It is a huge privilege to be invited into peoples lives to cook for them, sometimes for years , a week or just for one occasion.
I have cooked for a wide variety of clients in many different venues; stately homes, country houses with fantastic kitchen gardens, a fort, a castle, a chateau and on private estates some with their own beaches.
I worked in a writer’s residential creative studio, a spud pub in Ibiza, have catered for large groups in remote locations, assisted Jackie Kearney “the hungry gecko”with her wonderful asian street food at festivals and ran a delicatessen.
Learning from all this has taught me to value the freshness of ingredients, to be imaginative and creative, sometimes miles from shops and reliant on what is to hand.
I love making my own jams, chutneys, preserves, smoked salmon, sausages and I bake bread. I love feeding people.
Most of all…?
I just love to cook
