Craig Floate was born in Nottingham and has had food in his blood since he was a small child. From helping his mother to create the family Sunday roast to growing vegetables in the garden with his father. Craig studied after leaving school at a top catering college in Nottingham earning his qualifications whilst working in a small French bistro on the evenings. Doing everything from starters to desserts, to helping plating mains courses this certainly was a learning experience at a young age. Craig has also worked in large hotels in the North East of England, doing banqueting, A La carte, daily specials, functions, weddings all to a Rosette standard. His culinary journey has also took him to some of the biggest sporting venues around the UK, including – Royal Ascot, Cheltenham festival, British open golf, Wimbledon, F1 Silverstone and many more major events working with fresh produce to create some amazing dishes. This then led onto becoming the team chef for the British sailing team for 4 years, and Craig had not only the honour of cooking for royalty but cooking for the whole team during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games. Craig set up the private dining business in January 2013 to focus on doing his own food with his own menus. Working closely with the client to tailor a bespoke menu to their event, all the food is sourced locally within 10 miles of Nottingham, lending itself to the amazing produce we have around Nottingham. With a focus on quality ingredients the menus are traditionally local presented in a modern way. Read all Hide
