Chef, Consultant & Kitchen Management Solutions

My Story

My parents’ passion for food inspired my interest in cooking at a very early age. Mum, with her home economics teaching, imparted her skills of pastry and general home cooking, involving me from almost as soon as I could stand on a chair at the table and get stuck in!
Whilst completing GCSE’s and then A-Levels the first job I could get in a UK commercial kitchen was washing up. By showing interest and initiative I progressed through other areas of the kitchen starting with simple cooking tasks, then taking a full-time role as chef when I was 18. Since then I have worked in large scale hotels, small restaurants, pubs, golf courses and then restaurants with Michelin stars.
In my later career I found myself changing, with more interest in how a catering business operates, its staffing and the importance of the financial operation.
I have taken on large projects including:
The reopening of The University Arms, a large luxury 192 bed hotel including ‘Parker’s Tavern’ the hotel’s restaurant and events space.
The rebranding of The Willow Tree, Bourn Cambridgeshire, a boutique dining experience with domes.
Working with City Pub Group to fix operational sites throughout their group ranging from large scale pubs to hotel operations.
The Elm Abbots Ripton, running and starting a new business after a closure and refurbishment. I implemented new working practices and a new approach to catering post Covid. Staffing structures and payments, financial operation working towards closing the issues that continually plight the operations of a catering business
In 2019 I joined forces with Suzanne Weekes when we started our consultancy business. Our combined experience, plus industry associates we work with, covers all sectors of the hospitality industry at all levels. This means we can offer solutions for many issues found in any hospitality operation, as well as help to create new and dynamic operations for the new era.
