A Classically French Trained Chef from Edinburgh in Scotland, although my Heart was always in Pittenweem in Fife.
I have nearly 40 yrs experience working in Kitchens, from the Top French Restaurant in Scotland to a Staff Canteen in a Major Superstore, stopping along the way on Film Locations and working in Bars and Running Hotels
My favorite things to cook
Bakery Products and Chocolate Truffles, I have created my own range of healthy Shortbreads with a twist
My favorite family cooking traditions
Learning from my Grandmother, how to Bake by using hands as measurements, I still to this day work with my hands more than machines, I get a feel for the texture rather than a look of the texture
My cooking triumphs
Creating my own Company and selling my products in stores.
Cooking Steaks to order for 150 on a film location.
Covering 350 guests on my first night in a restaurant as the only Chef on duty, with no complaints or food sent back!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention!!
I'm a professional, I'm a perfectionist, that should tell it all!
