Chef’s Q & A with Chris Jeffery
Favourite celebrity chef?
Chef Chuck Hughes
If you could cook for anyone (dead or alive) who would it be?
My Grandmother, baking with her when I was growing up is what made me interested in a culinary career.
On Food and Cooking by Harod McGee – it really breaks down and explains the science of cooking with great detail.
If you weren’t a chef, what you would be doing?
Best meal you have ever had?
Venison loin with carrot and star anise puree and roasted hazelnuts, a dish from my time in New Zealand. It was the most perfectly balanced dish that I have ever had.
Kitchen tool you couldn’t live without?
My knives, the most basic kitchen tool but definitely the most valuable. Sharpie is a close second.
