What does hospitality mean to you?
It means anticipation and preparing for any guest’s arrival to be made to feel special, recognised, valued and cherished.
Desert Island Dish
My death row dish would be a picnic in the hope that we might be able to have it outside and I could run away… But probably a delicious spaghetti Bolognese, I love Italian cooking. I’m told by Heston Blumenthal that by putting a little star anise into your Bolognese makes all of the difference.
Spring, I love spring, flowers come into bloom, there’s a sense of hope.
Newsagent confectionary of choice
I’m very fond of Picnics… I did go through a terrible period of Jaffa Cake addiction, but I did get that under control.
Bibendum, for the beauty of the light and the stained glass.
The Hilton, Park Lane, for the views across London.
Dins by Santi Toura, Majorca, for his incredible food.
Three words to describe the future of hospitality
Expanding, levelling, joyful.
