The London West Hollywood 2008 - this was the opening night and I got to meet this football legend. We had dinner with him afterwards. He was a top bloke and that's coming from a spurs fan. ⠀ ⠀ Working in London, New York and LA in top restaurants I got to meet so many amazing people from all walks of life and we regularly had famous names in the dining room... very often I was sweating over the stove in the back of the kitchen and was none the wiser other times they sat right in front of me on the chefs table. My favourites were Harvey Keitel, Axel Rose and Will.i.am. ⠀ ⠀ If you could invite anyone, who would be your ultimate dinner guest? ⠀ ⠀ #davidbeckham #throwbackthursday #tbt #chefstable #finedining #thelondonwesthollywood #chefslife #footballfanatic #cheflifestyle #chefoninstagram #nzfood

Pancetta-wrapped prawns....these little flavour bombs are quick, easy and versatile...they could appear as a shared starter, canapé, or kids meal. ⠀ ⠀ It's an up market take on the surf and turf. The good news you can wrap prawns and make dip ahead of time so you cut down on prep time later.... anything to make you look like the relaxed host. ⠀ ⠀ I've put a a demo together over on my stories. ⠀ ⠀ A big thank you to those of you taking time to share and tag me, getting to see your end result is awesome. ⠀ ⠀ 🦐 What would I find you serving on your pre-dinner platters? ⠀ ⠀ #Surfnturf #surfandturf #shrimp #dinneris served #chefathome #madefresh #kidsdinner #chefoninstagram #cheflife #letscook #diningin #eatsocialnz #cheftalk #slowfood #eattheseasons #instachef #ilovecooking #recipevideo #dinnerinspo #nzchef #madeathome #fromscratch #homemadeisbest #makeitdelicious

When I see crispy salmon skin discarded on the side of someone’s plate my heart sinks a little. When cooked properly the skin it is the best part - like the crust on baked macaroni cheese.⠀ ⠀ Over in my story I’ll demo how to cook salmon at home - when it’s cooked right its such a great meal but it can easily end up over cooked and unpalatable - pay attention to the advice. The pea dish, a veggie version of petit pois à la Francaise, is an easy and delicious accompaniment too. ⠀ ⠀ This meal takes around 15 minutes to prepare and is healthy too⠀ 🐟 double tap if this looks like a good weeknight dinner.⠀ 🐟 Comment below if you have questions for me and tag a friend. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #chefathome #madefresh #salmon #kidsdinner #chefoninstagram #cheflife #letscook #diningin #eatsocialnz #cheftalk #slowfood #eattheseasons #instachef #ilovecooking #recipevideo #dinnerinspo #nzchef #madeathome #fromscratch #homemadeisbest #makeitdelicious ⠀ ⠀

Yorkshire puddings and a beef roast on a hot summers day - why not! ... at least the beef was cooked in the BBQ, kiwi style. ⠀ ⠀ My wife is British her father was a Yorkshireman so she had a beef roast every Sunday her entire childhood and I’ve got used to this tradition. Pop over to my stories to see the finished dish. ⠀ Any Yorkshire pudding fans out there? Who wants the recipe? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #chefathome #madefresh #kidsdinner #chefoninstagram #cheflife #letscook #diningin #eatsocialnz #cheftalk #slowfood #eattheseasons #instachef #ilovecooking #recipevideo #dinnerinspo #nzchef #madeathome #fromscratch #homemadeisbest⠀

Moules à la crème - not just any old mussels these are the quintessentially kiwi green-lipped ones that are unique to our shores. I prefer them to the smaller European ones any day. ⠀ ⠀ I often hear from people saying that cooking shellfish scares them. In my story maybe I can convince you to give it a go or simply give you some dinner inspiration - we all need that. The recipe is a simple classic and will have you scooping up the liquor at the end - don't forget to buy some bread. It’s a favourite at my house as my kids love them as much as I do. You can mix things up as there are endless adaptations: adding coconut milk and curried spices, cider and leeks, tomatoes and chilli... give it a go. ⠀ ⠀ I'm loving the input I'm getting from my posts so remember to...⠀ ❤️ like if you want to see how I made this ⠀ @ tag a friend who might be missing out on my cooking stories ⠀ 📝⬇️ comment below with other dishes you’d like me to demo or inspire me with your favourite mussel recipe. ⠀ ⠀ Happy Friday!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #chefathome #madefresh #kidsdinner #chefoninstagram #cheflife #letscook #diningin #eatsocialnz #cheftalk #slowfood #eattheseasons #instachef #ilovecooking #recipevideo #dinnerinspo #nzchef #moules #greenlippedmussels #easyhealthy #fridaydinner

My happy place... a corner of my office, my favourite chair an arms length from my cook book collection. ⠀ ⠀ I make time to thumb through and write notes for new recipe inspiration. My wife gets fed up with constantly having a pile of books lying on the floor that I’m working my way through.. I only have to raise my eyebrows to remind her of her rather excessive shoe collection. ⠀ ⠀ We all have our favourite book, what’s your go to cookbook 📚... • • #cookbook #menuinspiration #chefslife #dinnerinspiration #nzfood #ilovecookbooks #chefoninstagram #menuplanning

8 years married to my little ray of sunshine...⠀ ⠀ We didn't choose to get married right before Valentines but it does have its advantages: I remember the date, get to roll 2 celebrations into one and getting a dinner reservation is always a breeze. ⠀ ⠀ Our wedding date was brought forward when my father's cancer started to spread at an alarming rate and our families (well most of them) were going to be in NZ for another friends wedding. We had 2 weeks to plan everything with a rather unsettled 4-week old baby to appease. Guests were limited to immediate family, 12 of us, and it was held in front of a friends Matarangi beach house. ⠀ ⠀ It was an amazing day, with good wine and a simple menu catered by a local Whitianga restaurant who served us grilled whole crayfish with chips followed by a Pavlova. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #weddinganniversary #matarangi #rayofsunshine #beachwedding #nzsummer #nzbeaches
