Head Chef, The Mucky Duck, Drakeholes

What is your cooking style and what should people expect from the food on your menu?

My cooking style is affordable, recognisable fine dining, I love taking humble ingredients and turning them into something special for the customers to enjoy; my food is flavours everyone recognises but taken to a new level.

What is your favorite dish to cook and why?

Currently my favourite dish to cook is our plate of pork, I just love how many techniques, textures we use on the dish, and it's definitely our top selling dish on the menu.

Name a food item/dish/ingredient that isn’t considered “cheffy” but that you love to eat

I really enjoy adding some spice to most things I eat.

What do you like about The Staff Canteen app and website?

It's interesting to see what other chefs are producing, keeping up to date with industry news, competitions.

What are your plans for the future?

I would love to open my own restaurant in the near future!

What is the most important lesson you’ve learnt as a chef?

The most important thing I've learnt is the importance of teamwork, maybe cliché but it's then only way to succeed.
