My early years and training I owe to the Chew Valley in Bristol. Trained at the Ring O Bells in Compton Martin by Adam Oates, working up to head chef we produced both classic British pub food and modern fine dining in a beautiful old English pub.

My next step was to jump on the bandwagan of the every growing and innovative farm shop market. Joining award winning farmer Tom Bowles at Neston Farm headed up a new kitchen team working closely with the farm butcher and local suppliers.

From here my new challenge came in Ireland. A six room boutique hotel with our own pigs and walled garden. A real gem to home in the way I love to cook.
