QUICK-FIRE QUESTIONS

Signature dish?
Soupe à l'Oignon Gratinée. This classic French onion soup is a guaranteed joy when cooked correctly.

Favourite restaurant?
Babylon Restaurant. Unfortunately, this Richard Branson hidden gem of a French brasserie that Garden has long shut its doors but its beautiful location and great French cooking still inspires.

What’s your go-to meal at home?
Beef stew accompanied with jollof rice.

Most over-rated food trend?
I will say Avocado is the most over-rated food but Keto foods are not far away either. It's really bamboozling as to how many keto diets are there.

Which country has the best food?
France with the most Michelin stars will win this prize every year for sure.

Advice to a young chef?
Never stop learning. Be driven but be patient.

What are you most looking forward to about working at Alea?
I’m excited about the new menu launches and the exciting events and programs coming up for this year. We want Alea to have the best Sunday roast in Glasgow and that goal can definitely be achievable with the great Location, menu and team we have at Alea.

Chef's Tips

Making the perfect roast potatoes:

  • When the potatoes are peeled and dry, scratch them all over with a fork for extra crispiness
  • Let the potatoes dry out fully before putting in the oven
  • Always season well before baking!
