Hugh is a phenomenal BBQ chef and loves nothing more than cooking outside and tending to the hot coals and fire cookery.


Trevor’s skills lie fully across the board but his speciality and passion is pastry. Cooking and baking up delicious tarts, cakes and bread, Trevor is our go to guy for something sweet!
