About the Chef

Nothing gives Ellie quite as much joy as seeing someone's face when they've just put the most delicious morsel of food in their mouth and can't quite describe to their fellow dining companions just how good it is.

Nothing gives Ellie quite as much joy as seeing someone's face when they've just put the most delicious morsel of food in their mouth and can't quite describe to their fellow dining companions just how good it is. Ellie cooks to give that experience to as many people as possible. In today's world, so much focus is placed on how aesthetically pleasing and 'Instagrammable' dishes are. While presentation of food is indeed crucial, nothing - absolutely nothing - should compromise the taste and authenticity of a dish. Ellie has a passion for vegetarian and vegan food, and lives to debunk the myth that vegetables can't be substantial as a main course. Nevertheless, Ellie also gets a buzz out of cooking a fillet of fish to perfection, and slicing a seared loin of venison to reveal the crimson rareness within. Ellie has a particular affinity for Italian food, and spends a week every year in Sardinia hanging round the markets. Ellie has experience in catering for large parties through single-handedly catering a 12-personal chalet for a season in the Alps - but mainly through finding as many opportunities as possible to host dinner parties for friends. Ellie is very thoughtful in her menu planning, and creates themes for each party which focus on authentic ingredients and recipes - Lebanese, Spanish, Italian and Japanese are her favourites. As unorthodox as it may seem, Ellie never follows a recipe. She combines ideas, flavours and ingredients but most importantly her own passion and instinct to create a truly unique dining experience for her guests. Read all Hide
