In the past 23 years I have worked in various establishments and have learned a range of cuisines and skills. I have been in charge of some small kitchens and some rather large ones, I have organized training and education in these posistions for all individuals I have worked with, guided them in restaurant and kitchen management, cooking skills, hygiene, cost control, stock control, inventory, product knowledge and many other aspects of the hospitality industry.
I am very creative in menu design, food technology and development, I enjoy being free to come up with new dishes and serving up the unexpected to the customer and seeing their reaction. I love to mix up different cultures and blend ingredients to enhance flavors and excite the pallet.
I have also played a very active role in back office systems including dealing with suppliers, ordering of kitchen stock and that of the bar and restaurant, keeping up with trends in pricing and sourcing of new products.
I am creative and have a way of working that is unconventional but I get results and enjoy my job and make the people I work with want to be there working along side me.
