often surprises my friends and family is that for me the best
part of my job isn't just the cooking and preparation of dishes,
it's the smile on my diners faces, the laughter and the great
time my guests have, for me it's all about the experience I'm
able to give my customers, from that welcome smile when you
walk in, to the glass of crisp, refreshing Chablis to the world
class food we're able to serve.
I've been fortunate enough to cook for Presidents, Kings, Queens
and even the odd professional dancer (from my infamous time
on Strictly Come Dancing!), but time and time again it's the
quiet customer in the corner that makes my day when they come
up and personally thank me for what my team have done.
Weddings, for all of us here, represent something special, it's
the once in a lifetime event, the one day you will never forget,
a brief moment frozen in time for eternity. Every member of
my team genuinely feels honoured that we get to help so many
people celebrate their wedding day and that's what gives us
our drive, our commitment to keep creating award winning food
and to providing the best service possible, the knowledge that
we are helping make so many people so very happy."
