Since an early age Alec has been interested in cooking, however he is intolerant to cheese, and when the time came to choose his higher education (in Italy where he grew up), he chose engineering over the culinary arts purely because of this aversion to cheese. Alec has always been a keen cook however, and began to cook daily since his arrival in London in 1998. He eventually took part in Masterchef UK and though he finished 24th from 18000 or so applicants, it gave him the realisation that he should abandon the engineering career to pursue his love of culinary arts. Since 2012 Alec has had the pleasure to experience in many kitchens (ranging from 1 day to 2 weeks), most notably "L'enclume" "Le Gavroche" & "Le Manoir". In 2013, Alec ran a 20 seat bistro for a period of 4 months (alongside his full time engineering job) where the owners demanded that he take the time to talk to each table after service. The customer feedback bolstered his confidence immensely, giving him the courage to quit the position of "contract manager/building services expert" and share his time between looking after his young family and catering for private parties and events. Chef Alec works predominantly in London, Lutton and Northampton; however, he is available in a variety of places North of London especially. Read all Hide
