A Look at

Our story


I have designed a fantastic range of packages to suit even the most novice of foodies. Since starting out in 1988, where I built on my budding interest in world cuisine by travelling across Australia and Thailand, I have worked as a professional chef in many prestigious hotels and restaurants.

I have also been fortunate enough to work as a private chef in Barbados, at the luxury world-famous resort of Sandy Lane. If you want to be sure that your event is a culinary success, you can count on me. In addition to catering, I also have a pop-up bistro called Bistro Seventy One which offers fine dining for garden parties, events, pubs, and bars.
