Alex grew up around South Australia in a small coastal town called Port Lincoln on the tip of the Eyre Peninsula renowned for tuna, great whites and surfing! His first kitchen job was at an Italian restaurant over looking Boston Bay, in the town centre where he ran the wood fired pizza section for a year, from there he moved to Fleurieu Peninsula south of Adelaide. During this time Alex completed his studies at the Regency College (voted one of the top colleges in Australia for Commercial Cookery) He completed his apprenticeship at a food and wine orientated gastro pub in McLaren Vale surrounded by vineyards boasting one of the best cellar doors and Chefs Tables in Australia. Now a fully qualified professional chef, Alex set his sights to the UK where he found himself working at a Fine Dining seafood restaurant in Salcombe, Devon. After a year of hard work there he decided on a different challenge... so off he went to the French Alps, working as a private chef in a chalet cooking and snowboarding his way through the winter. In between his second season in the Alps Alex found a Chef position in a 5 star hotel in Watergate Bay, Cornwall cooking and surfing, his two greatest passions! After all the fun in the snow and sun Alex decided to hit the big smoke of London where he found himself working for a private catering company cooking for the likes of the Royal family, celebrities such as Gweneth Paltrow, Ricky Gervais, Chris Martin and Barack Obama to name a few. Alex now runs a successful catering company called The Pickled Fork providing bespoke food services in London. Read all Hide
