Private Chef Craig's Journey

​Craig has always felt that food was a part of who he was ever since he was young. After school he studied in Nottingham at a top catering college. He would wait tables and also worked in a small French bistro in the evenings whilst studying. Craig managed to develop his cooking skills when he joined a medium sized hotel as a Chef de Partie.

As a chef there are many roads that can be taken and Craig wanted to experience different types of catering, so he started catering for corporate companies as well as universities. As he got more experience and his confidence grew, he soon started to cater for well-known sporting events such as;

  • ​Royal Ascot
  • ​Cheltenham Race Festival
  • ​Wimbledon
  • ​British Open Golf
  • ​Motorsports Events
