Meet The Chef

Meet The Chef


Crafting a culinary culture of health and wellbeing.

The Training 

Like most chefs, I began my culinary journey by working my way up the food chain. I started work at The Clifton Arms in Lytham St. Annes, under the watchful eye of Chef Paul Caddy. I gained hands-on experience in various departments, while also attending catering college and learning the ropes with local merchants and purveyors.


After three years, I graduated to the Michelin star Northcote Manor, where I worked under the legendary Chef Nigel Haworth. Since then, I’ve enjoyed a varied career spanning 25 years, working in some of the world’s most prestigious restaurants from London to Dubai to Beverly Hills, picking up a range of culinary and nutritional qualifications along the way.

This includes certification in plant-based nutrition through an online program at Cornell University, led by the esteemed Dr T. Colin Campbell, and further qualifications in elite sports nutrition from Matthew Kenny. Most recently, I’ve worked as a plant-based personal chef for a high-profile private client, and have consulted in the development of nutritionally balanced health foods in Los Angeles.



After devouring as much knowledge and practical skills as I could in restaurants across the UK, I set off on a journey of discovery around the world. A Captain Cook of sorts, I was determined to discover the most influential diets from the ancient world. I became fascinated by the cultures I came across and the important role of cuisine in the local community.
Food is the common ground that binds us all. It’s a language we all speak; it says hello when we are unable to do so ourselves. I developed a passion for learning the dialects of different diets in less developed countries, where food doubles as a holistic health remedy in place of widespread westernized medicine. 
To eat in these countries is to go back in time – to a period when sustenance relied heavily on a farm to fork mentality with seasonal ingredients and minimal processing. I realized there was a lot to be learned from these communities.

The Telling

As I journeyed through kitchens and communities, I realized that food was more than just fuel for our bodies. It was a reflection of our cultures, our histories, and our very existence. I saw the impact of our modern agricultural practices and the toll it was taking on our health and the planet. So, I dove headfirst into the world of nutrition and wellness, seeking out the foods that could truly nourish us on every level.   And thus, Bare Cuisine was born. This isn't your average food blog or wellness website. It's a manifesto for a better way of living, a celebration of the whole superfoods, recipes, and dietary innovations that have sustained us for centuries. So come on this journey with me, as we explore the corners of the globe and discover the power of food to heal and transform us.
