After leaving my previous role at Eton College as Junior Sous Chef, I took on my current job role in May of last year at Wycombe Abbey Girls’ School. I currently head up the hospitality and fine dining section as the Senior Sous Chef, supported by the kitchen brigade and under the watchful eye of Renee Yarshon, the Executive Chef. I cater for a number of different events and functions, big and small, ranging from canapés and fine dining dinners to weddings and whole school fun fairs. As you can see the job is truly varied, and I love that it comes with such a wide scope in which I can get so creative.

I hope to one day move on to teaching. I know that I had such enthusiasm for all things food as a child and young teen, and I think it would be a very rewarding to help educate other children or teenagers and encourage them to love food just as much as I do.
