About Craig Floate

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

One of Craigs proudest and memorable experiences is being able to cooking for professional athletes in the 2012 Olympic Games. Craig decided to become a personal chef, private dining allows him to cook fine dining restaurant quality food in the comfort of your home, as well as corporate events.
