Head Chef, Steely Steak House, London
My position as head chef at this well-known London Steak house gave me the ability to put my personal stamp on the menu. My main duties were to brief the other chefs at the beginning and end of service, keep the kitchen in good order, and of course, cook and check meals. I created my own line of signature sauces whilst in this employment, which are firm favourites on the menu. I also employed a new style of steak cooking whilst working there.
