Q & A with Jack Rawlings
March 16, 2018
How long have you been cooking and what made you decide to be a chef?
I’ve been cooking for 11 years but have been around a hospitality background since a very early age as my mother was a hotel manager and my father a Chef. They were the hugest influence on me deciding to become a chef.
Can you talk us through your style of cooking?
I like to cook with flavours I like to eat myself and my style is also influenced by the kitchen’s rooftop garden.
Which chef has influenced you most during your career?
I wouldn’t be able to pick just one there are too many!
What are your favourite garnishes to use when plating up?
I find that flavoured oils can really help to lift a dish or accentuate flavours.
What is your favourite product to work with?
I really enjoying cooking Pork. A personal favourite of mine which I find can be so versatile.
What does the future hold for you as a chef, what is your ambition?
My ambition as a Chef is to never stop learning. There is so much knowledge and experience within our industry which needs to be nurtured.
