I am a passionate and focused development chef with considerable experience and a proven track record of innovation, bringing products and recipes from initial concept through to the final product on the shelves.
Working with all the major food retailers, I have developed a substantial network of contacts and an understanding of how they work and what they are looking for.
I have excellent presentation skills and regularly act as the face of companies showcasing products through the development stages and final sign off.
