About

From Birmingham in the UK originally, Duncan has been working as a freelance private chef in Meribel and the 3 valleys for the last 8 winters. He has a wide range of experience, and has found his clients vary from low key, family groups in chalets to tasting menus for billionaires arriving in helicopters. His summer work has included several summers at the five star Rosewood Tuckers Point in Bermuda and a number of Michelin guide and AA rosette restaurants around the UK. More recently he has been closely involved with the 'farm to table' movement espoused by the Wildland group. This summer he has been working on a large private estate in northern Scotland.  

 

Duncan is a keen snowboarder who is always happy to swap stories from a day on the hill. Food wise he loves south east asian dishes and Japanese food, French provincial cuisine and northern Italian risotto's, polenta and spelt. As a trained baker he is a big fan of gluten and yeast.
