I was Executive Chef in a 1400 person capacity Irish themed pub and restaurant in Bahrain, in the Middle East, where I also project managed the development and opening of French brasseries, and the division's website. I also worked as Executive Chef in a 60 bedroom hotel in the UK catering for conferences, weddings and banqueting for up to 350 people as well as overseeing the hotel's two busy restaurants.
I have also worked as Head Chef in a variety of establishments; from a family run Italian restaurant, countryside Gastro-pubs in the UK & French and modern British restaurants in France, through to a Jazz and Blues restaurant in Tucson, Arizona.
I love all areas of cooking but in particular I am passionate about patisserie, deserts, bread and chocolate making. I am bi-lingual French and English and also speak a little Italian, some German and Spanish. I am a keen amateur photographer, a musician, and I am an active member of Mensa. I have the STCW 95 certificate for yachts and the Food Safety and Hygiene Level II Certificate.
Whether you require my Chef services for your Estate or Private Residence, Yacht or Villa, Business or Private function, I offer an unrivalled service of planning and cooking, with professionalism, care and creativity at the very heart of what I do, which comes from my lifetime of love and passion for all things food..
Thank you for your interest
Chef E. Jamie Stubbings
