Dan’s interest in food stems back from when he use to work with his dad in his butchers shop as a kid.
When Dan finished school he joined City College Plymouth and completed three years with them, working alongside studying, entering a few competitions along the way. Following college Dan had the opportunity to work in Sweden at Grand Hotel Alingsås an experience that broadened his skills and knowledge of world food.
On his return to the UK Dan was offered his first Head Chef roll at the Dolphin Inn, Kingston. More recently for the past three years Dan had been working at The Coach House by Michael Caines, situated in the grounds of Kentisbury Grange Hotel, North Devon. Dan’s newest venture takes him to Bristol at the renowned Berwick Lodge where he is hoping to achieve something special.
