He’ll be competing in the Scottish heat against some amazing chefs in the famous kitchen, and we can’t wait for you to see it.

“Having been Head Chef at The Ethicurean for 4 years now, I felt it was the right time to push myself a little further and see what I could achieve, but I couldn’t have done any of it without the support of the team at the restaurant and Matthew, my business partner who helped in any way they could.”
