Chef by Day, Volunteer by night

With FoodCycle you're all working together on the same 3 courses, in a much smaller space, it creates a much more tangible sense of teamwork in comparison to my day job. The way FoodCycle works also encourages you to be creative in the kitchen, it's a real confidence booster when you've all come up with something off the top of your head, made it together and it goes down really well, it really makes you want to cook and experiment more in general.

Like a UK version of Suits, minus the withering one liners. In casual purple T-shirts.
