Well-travelled Chef John has always been surrounded by exotic food, thanks to his mother’s career as a cookery teacher. Her influence inspired him to travel around Australasia, Asia and Europe, before returning to the UK to become a chef over 20 years ago. He is now a member of The Welsh Culinary Association and was a semi-finalist in The National Chef of Wales Competition in 2012 & 2014. He has cooked for many celebrities and sports personalities, and is passionate about creating delicious dishes.

This was a new experience for us so we weren’t sure what to expect. I can only say it was one of the most enjoyable events imaginable from start to finish. Superb food cooked to perfection by a chef at the top of his game and the perfect ambience. We would love to do it again!
Apple Pie and Custard heaven, and Chef John ploughed through despite the power failure on one side of the kitchen! Thanks again.
