I met Dorian on my first day of college back in 2004, and have worked alongside him off and on during our travels in Sydney, London and Herefordshire. I helped out at AROT’s first supper club at Dunkerton’s Cider Barn, Hay Festival and most recently, The Bookshop. When my wife and I decided we wanted to move away from London, I called Dorian and we began bouncing ideas off eachother about setting up a restaurant in Worcestershire. Fast forward 1 year and I’m now running Burger Shop Worcester in a beautifully restored railway arch.
FAV MEAL TO COOK AT HOME
I love classic comfort food when I’m at home – Spaghetti Bolognese, sausage + mash or a banging roast.
ONE PERSON I'D HAVE DINNER WITH DEAD OR ALIVE
I think it would be the chef/author Anthony Bourdain, he would have some crazy stories about the industry and his travels.
WHAT I ALWAYS HAVE IN MY FRIDGE
Butter, cheese, onions + garlic – the essentials for any meal.
FAV A RULE OF TUM DISH
I love the Kimchi Burger + Cheese Curds.
WHERE I FEEL MOST AT HOME
Anywhere with my wife Abby or in the pub with my mates.
WHAT I WANTED TO BE WHEN I WAS 7 YEARS OLD
I absolutely loved diggers when I was a kid, so I wanted to be a JCB driver!
