Hi, I’m Debbie Thorpe, a seasoned chef with an extraordinary culinary journey. From training as a seafood chef in South Africa to earning my Chef certification in West Yorkshire, I’ve honed my skills and explored diverse flavors.

As a support chef at Michelin-starred Restaurant No. 6, I delved into refined and innovative cuisine, learning from talented culinary artists. Later, as a pastry chef at Emily Scott’s, I embraced simplicity, creating desserts that celebrated natural flavors and left a lasting impression on guests.

With over two decades of dedication, my style blends Nouvelle, Modern British, and South African influences. Sustainability is vital, as I source the finest local produce and incorporate foraged edibles for harmonious and memorable flavors.

As a mentor, consultant, and educator, I share my culinary knowledge with aspiring chefs, helping them reach their potential.

Let’s create an unforgettable dining experience together, inspired by simplicity and fresh, high-quality ingredients.

Thank you for considering my services.
