We prised Richard out of the Development Kitchen to talk about his career in catering and his life in the food industry:

“I started my journey into the food industry aged 13, washing dishes at a Cavalier Steak House in Leeds.

On leaving school at 16 I went to Catering College in Birmingham for 2 years and then out into the big wide world of Hotels and Restaurants with jobs in Somerset, Coventry and Bath before moving to the North East in ‘89.
