Here are some pictures I’ve taken over the years of chefs, and in professional kitchens.
I’ve been lucky enough to visit some amazing places. Michel Troisgros’ gleaming establishment in Roanne, Michel Guerard’s beautiful restaurant in Eugenie-les-Bains, Fergus Henderson’s amazing St. John Restaurant in London's Clerkenwell, to name but a few.
I enjoy spending time with Chefs. Maybe it’s the solitary nature of photography, but I love the team buzz that goes on. I love the contrast between the hot, hard work behind the scenes and the quiet perfection ‘front of house’. The concentration. The dedication. The knowledge that, keen amateur cook that I am, I would not last a single day under that pressure.
