Me? I just love to cook------Anything!

My working life started by producing confectionary goods for café, shops and restaurants around Hereford, and it has not stopped! In 35 years there has barely been a day when I, haven’t cooked something.

Being creative with food is a real life passion. Using lovely ingredients to produce delicious food is an art form.

Taste trends are continually being re-invented to create modern and contemporary dishes which I try passionately to bring to the table.

I’ve been lucky to have travelled different parts of the world, to see different cuisines and source lovely ingredients and see how they actually are grown and look and see how they reach our plates.

I’ve always run my own business and from small beginnings the firm has grown into a thriving, vibrant, established company. Over the years, I feel I, have built up an excellent reputation for producing some of the best food available anywhere.

A complete understanding of the customer requirements is vital and some of the original clients I, started with, are still with me today- that makes me very proud.
