About the foodishboy.com
Farmer? Brewer? Butcher? Baker? Imagine your incredulity at reading a CV that lists 52 different employers in the space of year. From Michelin-starred restaurants to fish and chip shops, from coffee farms in Brazil to tea plantations in Darjeeling. With no prior experience, I’ve brewed sake in rural Japan cooked a 7-course taster menu in Iceland, and joined a Los Angeles religious cult serving organic vegan food. I’ve distilled in the town of Tequila and cooked on the Orient Express to Machu Picchu.
By the time my project reaches a conclusion I will have cooked in 5 of the world’s top 50 restaurants. Not bad for a boy who only a year ago had never stepped inside a professional kitchen.
You can read more about why I’m doing this and how the project came about in my first few posts.
I’m Alex, a 26-year-old, self-taught chef, beer lover and avid food critic. After graduating from Oxford University I went on to pursue a career in the food and drink industry at teapigs. Now ready to get my hands mucky cooking in kitchens around the world.
