The dad-of-one takes inspiration from across the globe but always uses ingredients familiar to us all. His passion for food is infectious and he’s spent the past eleven years inspiring home cooks up and down the country to get back into the kitchen and enjoy the cooking experience.
He’s has also been a brand ambassador for British Eggs, Philadelphia, British Asparagus, Bacofoil, Thermomix, Meater, OXO, to name but a few.
