I come from a family of Chef's - my Grandmother was a chef in Paris for many years and then bought and ran a Fish and Chip restaurant in the South of England, my Father and Step Mother ran pubs in Cambridgeshire and became very successful for the restaurant side of their business. Having learnt from them and grown up in the food environment I am passionate about food but home chef style nothing too fancy.
I have run a pub kitchen catering for 45 people, catered for outside functions for 100 people and lastly I ran a fish and chip restaurant catering for 27 people.
I am now in the process of opening a restaurant in a busy town in France for 80 people - opening at the beginning of May.
I am really glad to have found this forum and can see it will be extremely helpful to me and I hope that I can input and help others as well.
Nice to meet you all :)
