He started cooking at the age of 15 and really enjoyed the buzz of cooking since then. His inspiration comes with produce-driven ideas and simple techniques. He sees keeping the original flavours of ingredients as very important.
He gets excited when he gets a tricky dietary requirement, as that’s when he is able to be creative and pull off a bespoke menu.
FavouritesKingfish carpaccio, tuna jelly, white balsamic vinegar. "This is a dish where I have been using trimmings from a kingfish (the ends of the fillet) and slicing thinly and then banging out to fill the plate. using a tuna bone that the fish supplier usually throw away, and lightly cover tuna in brown sugar for 30mins and then making a stock while add seaweed to and white soy. It will make a rich tuna natural gelatin jelly. Few small spoons of jelly on top of fish and then garnish with dressing and seasonal citrus and garnish. I love the dish because it uses a lot of prime products but products that are not used. Example trimming of the fish fillet, if the fillet get too thin at the end it can not be used as it will cook unevenly to the rest of the fillet. Tuna bone is great product but not used so the fish monger give it away."
