Updated: 29 November 2016
Get to know Alice Feaver, head chef at Gousto. Previous Fine Art student Alice first got into cooking through her friends at university and pans soon replaced paintbrushes in her artillery. Now she spends her days curating imaginative but manageable recipes for Gousto menu and boxes. We had a chat with Alice to find out more.

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?

Kate Bush.

TCT: If you weren’t a chef, what would you be doing?

I’d be an illustrator.

TCT: How would you describe Gousto recipes in 80 characters?

Simple, varied, fun. Cooking from scratch made easy. Big on flavour, low on waste.
