"I have been a Chef for 13 years now, my journey began in my home town in the South west of Ireland, this is where I first discovered my passion for cooking, as soon as I stepped foot inside the kitchen that was it, I was hooked!
At the young age of 19 I traveled to Australia and New Zealand in pursuit of a new culinary adventure (along with some of the usual backpacker antics). I spent 3 years on this side of the world working in high end restaurants, learned many new techniques, met some amazing people and discovered a completely new style of cooking which will stay with me forever.
Eventually I decided to come back to London and my first introduction to a busy London restaurant was in Mayfair. After a relatively long stint of 80 hour weeks I decided to move to the world of corporate catering in search of a better work life balance to spend more time with friends and family.
I have worked in some of the largest contracts in the city of London over the last 7 years and met some amazing Chefs who have helped me to become the Chef I am today. I take pride in using locally sourced seasonal ingredients to create my menus, there's so much fantastic produce on my door step, I am spoiled for choice. I love all types of cuisine but lately as the weather has been so nice I am loving having the BBQ on the go!" - Jack O'Donovan
