Heritage

For Chef Paige, the art of cheffing runs deep in her veins, shaped by a rich tapestry of culinary influences from her diverse family. With a Spanish grandmother infusing her heritage with Mediterranean flavours and another in Cornwall cultivating her own produce, Paige was surrounded by a love for fresh, quality ingredients from a young age.

Nurtured by a mother with a passion for cooking delicious meals in an environment where waste wasn’t tolerated, Paige developed a keen sense of resourcefulness and creativity with food. Along with her uncle’s passion for foraging and outdoor cooking, Chef Paige is used to the kitchen being a lively arena for creativity and collaboration. This diverse culinary upbringing has not only fueled Paige’s love for cooking but has also instilled in her a deep appreciation for the stories and traditions that unfold around the dining table.
