Catering has been my career for over 30 years, training at Westminster College, my first job was on the beautiful island of Tresco off the Cornwall coast, and so my catering adventure began. Working in hotels and restaurants, I finally took the plunge and opened my own wine bar in Cheshire, a fabulous experience.
Moving back to Hertfordshire I thought I would give myself a break and move into contract catering, Monday to Friday 9-5 – so I joined Connect. Twenty years later, working my way up through the ranks, the Monday to Friday, 9-5 did not quite work out, but my passion for catering, the food, the service, the teamwork is still at my core – I love what I do, I am proud of the Connect Team and I still love getting back to the floor.
My favourite food – I am famous for my love of freshly made coleslaw, but a real traditional roast with loads of fresh veg followed by rhubarb crumble and custard will tick the box every time!
