I started cooking at the very young age of about 10.

They would always get me to make cakes and biscuits, and help out by cooking meals at night.
I first knew I wanted to be a chef from the age of about 14. It always was a passion and I always enjoyed it.
People who don’t cook themselves are missing out on the fun you can have.
