Josh has rubbed shoulders and sharpened his knives with some of the UK's most successful and celebrated chefs. These protégés include Michael Caines, Daniel Clifford and John Campbell, each with 2 Michelin stars to their name. Not to mention a great big handful of very talented and skilful, local and international chefs that Josh has had the fortune to work with. Starting his career learning the fundamentals of classic French cookery with Michael Caines, coupled with time in a Devon smokehouse gives Josh’s cooking a strong backbone of tradition and flavour. However, working with more modern preparations such as ‘molecular gastronomy’ and sous vide throughout his career makes Josh a unique and creative chef with an appetite for innovation. Having traveled extensively through Asia, North America, Australasia and Europe Josh has lots of different influences in his evergrowing repertoire. Running kitchens and events both here in the UK and across the world at some very fine restaurants, Josh has gained a lot of experience and has a few tricks up his sleeve. With a passion for cooking a dish that you won’t find anywhere else and a penchant for using the best, responsibly sourced ingredients, Josh is your chef. Read all Hide
