Born in Canterbury, Kent, Steve grew up in the garden of England, deep in the Kent countryside. Surrounded by hop gardens and apple orchards, strawberry fields and fresh vegetables, seasonal produce quickly became a part of everyday life. It was no surprise that, having been so inspired by fresh local produce from such a young age, Steve chose to become a chef and use all these amazing ingredients to their maximum potential.
Steve has worked in restaurants and hotels throughout the UK, from high end London eateries to waterside hotels in Cornwall and from a Michelin-starred hotel to a Gastro pub on the Isles of Scilly.
His philosophy is straightforward – keep things simple, and let the food speak for itself. Using the finest Cornish seafood, local meat and vegetables to create delicious and exciting dishes is my aim and passion. A true foodie, Steve strives to create the best dining experience he possibly can.
