City & Guilds 706 1 & 2
I joined HTA in March 2017 and I am based in the Edinburgh office.
My job role is working as a Chef /Catering manager creating a variety of healthy and nutritional food each day for the staff and sometimes clients to eat at lunch. I love creating and experimenting with foods to see what new recipes go well or not so well with the office team.
I have been in the catering industry since leaving school in 1987.
I have worked in various hospitality and catering establishments, which has helped me build my catering portfolio of knowledge. I believe in creating food dishes using many fresh ingredients, and am very keen on working with clients to create a nutritional, healthy balanced variety of food.
Over the many years working as a Chef & Head Chef, I have achieved various awards in the private catering sector. These include; ‘Healthy Living Award’, ‘Food for the Brain’, & ‘Food for Life’. I have a keen eye for detail and love creating new dishes but also aiming to create food to suit all taste buds in our ever-developing food market.
I keep up to date with current food trends to help further develop my catering skills and knowledge, which enables me to meet various customer demands. The food industry has always been a popular one, and it is ever changing. I believe that it is important that as chefs we keep developing ourselves, creating new and exciting recipes to remain contemporary and fresh in a market, which is always evolving.
