Meet the Chef

There’s a talented team behind the scenes in the café kitchen, working hard to produce each and every mouth-watering meal that comes through those doors. Blake and Sam have been running the café kitchen for four years now, ably assisted by their capable team.

Q. How long have you worked here?

A. I’ve worked at Greendale for three years.

Q. What are the best bits?

A. I like the way the business is family-orientated. I also appreciate how fresh all the produce is.

Q. Is there a dish you cook more than any other in the café?

A. The café’s most popular dish is the steak baguette – I make quite a few of those!

Q. What about you – what’s your favourite dish? Do you have a favourite ingredient, too?

A. At the moment it’s pan-fried Sea Bass with chorizo and butter-bean ragu, with samphire. My favourite ingredient would have to be cumin (I love my spices!). 

Q. If you could cook a meal for anyone, who would it be?

A. George Lucas!
