"I think more women need support from a young age to come into the food business, and I believe it all begins with education, like the apprenticeship that I took on. If young women are encouraged to start a career in food, they are more likely to pursue it."

Why is the Women in Food programme important to you?

I think the Women in Food programme is key to helping others find a passion and career within the catering industry whether it’s a young girl leaving school or a mother ready to re-enter the world of work. As chefs, we need to support others starting their culinary journey to give them the right education and training for their future.
