WHAT IS THE GUTSIEST THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
Quitting my desk job in London, and taking off to work as a chef on Superyachts in the Caribbean. No clear plan, just me, a snorkel and a stash of recipe books under my arm.
WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT LIFE PHILOSOPHY?
Play it by ear. Go with the flow.
HOW WOULD YOUR GREATEST FRIEND DESCRIBE YOU IN 3 WORDS
Spirited. OCD. Gutsy.
HOW DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN GUT HEALTH?
Two years ago I was working as a private chef in London, and my employer asked me to start making water kefir. A year later we had upscaled the production and where making 8litres a week and delivering it to any of her friends who were not well. This experience prompted me to study nutrition with a focus on Gut Health.
DO YOU HAVE ANY GUT FRIENDLY TIPS THAT ARE PART OF YOUR DAILY ROUTINE?
I'm constantly standing at the fridge with a fork in hand dipping into jars of living things I have created.
WHAT OTHER CHEFS HAVE INSPIRED YOU?
My Mother, I have a lot to thank her for! Oof, so many... Robin Gill. Diana Henry. Holly Davis.
HAVE YOU HAD ANY FERMENTING EXPLOSIONS?
Yes plenty. Sadly my ever supportive husband has taken the brunt of most of them. The worst being Dearbhla Reynold's "happy" fermented chili sauce exploding in his face.
