Guest Chef →

Restaurants and other eateries

The modern chef is a highly mobile individual, as “pop-up” restaurants and temporary festival eateries become ever more popular. It is now common place for restaurants to host one-off nights with visiting chefs, where a restaurant hosts a number of different guest chefs over several nights has become a trend in its own right.

If you are one of these restaurants and would like me to bring something different to your establishment with my style of cuisine, I would like to hear from you.

I am also available for hire to guest chef at cookery schools, clubs and societies, and for any private special occasion for small groups.

Recipe Development & Creation →

Recipe development is generally achieved through trial and error, experimentation, and taste testers. Chefs that create new recipes have learnt through years of experience and extensive trials, how different ingredients will interact with each other, how they taste on their own, and which combinations work best.

For others, recipe creation is a matter of altering existing recipes, or creating a new version of what they might have eaten whilst dining out.

I currently create a new recipe every month incorporating all of the above techniques, and am collating my ideas with the intention of ultimately publishing them.

My experience enables me to offer recipe testing, or even to help you to develop unique and tailored recipes for your establishment that target your local cliental.

Teaching Cookery in Schools & Colleges →

With increased focus on obesity, anorexia and other food relating illnesses, it is important that we teach young people how to cook and eat healthy food. This basic life-long skill will enable them to manage their health in the long term.

With the ever increasing numbers of fast food chains providing convenience food, and supermarket ready meals, there seems little likely hood that these numbers will be decreasing in the near future unless we take pro-active action. Parents working long hours may not have the time to cook meals at home or teach their children how to cook, resulting in the long term with the next generation of parents having not had the benefit of healthy home cooking.

I will teach you through my courses, how to cook and eat healthy balanced meals, and show you how fresh nutritious food, can be cooked in a very short time, at a fraction of the cost, and using recipes that are quick and easy to follow.

The courses will also teach you how many of the ingredients used in Indian dishes are known for their medicinal properties. My teaching style is informal, and aims to be encouraging, educational, therapeutic and above all fun. The classes will also teach you how to manage your time, improve your organisational skills, and gain confidence in using all of the necessary kitchen appliances.
