Mi biografía A descendant of a noble Irish family, I was born and raised in South Africa. After completing my studies, I interned in the Ritz Hotel in Paris, and spent the following years managing hotels and restaurants in South Africa and Britain. I also traveled extensively in Asia and Africa to discover new flavors.

In 1984 I moved to France where I worked with the world famous patissier and chocolatier Bernachon and then the renown restaurateur Paul Bocuse.

A year later, I moved to Italy and fell in love with Tuscany. I purchased and restored the Castello di Spaltenna in Gaiole. During this period, I became a Master Chef of the Discovery Channel. Having sold Spaltenna, my' Chianti base became the Osteria del Castello at the famous Castello Brolio where I began teaching cooking lessons.

In 2006-7 I finally turned my dream project into reality: a cooking school in Tuscany - Chianti Kitchen.
