TCT: As a chef, what is the most unusual request you have had?
Someone once asked me to make an entire menu out of blood. Black pudding was as far as I got.
TCT: What advice would you give to someone who was trying to break into the business?
Get some restaurant experience. It can be tough, but it makes you stronger and teaches you how to be organised like nothing else.
TCT: You’ve had a very successful career with Gousto so far! What’s next?
I’m working on a cookbook and then world domination.
TCT: If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
TCT: If you weren’t a chef, what would you be doing?
I’d be an illustrator.
