How did you get into cooking?

I completed a ski season in the French alps, where I worked for a luxury chalet company cooking for up to 10 guests per week. The world then went into a global lock down, I carried on cooking to stay sane. 

How does your upbringing influence your cooking style?

My Mum is an avid cook and I had lovely home cooked meals throughout my childhood. I would always be in the kitchen with her. My great nana was a fantastic baker and could produce the most delicious cakes! So I have definitely been influenced by the strong women in my life. 

If you weren’t a chef, what do you think you would be?

I trained as a sports therapist at university so potentially would have gone into that as a career. I’d definite do something practical and hands-on in an environment with other people. I don’t think I would do well in an office job!

If you could bring 3 items to a desert island what would you bring and what would you make with them?

Definitely flour (I'm such a carb lover) then I could make bread (with the seawater that surrounds the island) and pasta etc. Probably milk as then I can make my own butter and cheese to go with my warm bread. Then I should probably have something healthy… so my last ingredient would be tomatoes, then I could make a yummy pasta sauce or make my own sundried tomatoes and replant the seeds. 

Where do you want to be with your career in 5 years time?

Gosh I can’t think past the next year let alone 5! I definitely want to be a travelling chef, so I can see the world while working. In a couple of years I could see myself starting my own boutique catering business. I would also love to write a cookbook, but that’s more of a personal goal than a career move.
