"Having always had a love for baking and cooking, I started my way into the industry by deciding to study Hospitality Management at Bournemouth University and Cake Decorating at Bournemouth and Poole College at the age of 18. After graduating, I went for interviews at some highly regarded cake decorators and catering companies in London and ended up working at the prestigious Rhubarb Food Design as a Canapé Chef and Maisie Fantaisie as a freelance cake decorator for several years after, two highly regarded companies in their fields. I ended up working on events including Elton John's White Tie & Tiara Ball and also for the President of Gabon.
After a spell of travelling and working in Cambodia and the French Alps, I came back to London and did a further two years at the Royal Albert Hall, in between a few more ski seasons. Four years in London was enough for me and after a brief visit to Edinburgh during the festival I was convinced it was the place for me! Countryside, beautiful city and no underground, perfect!
When I first settled in Edinburgh I worked as Head Chef at a varying number of places including Jupiter Artland, a sculpture park near Ratho, and received one of my biggest achievements to date, a 90% review from the Scotsman! Having gained this I knew that I had it in me to set up my own business. I took courses and spent hours researching start-ups and business ideas, and here I am today, opening up a cafe and already having a police box in Edinburgh!"
