MY BUZZ

Within minutes of winning I had numerous inquiries for business and the increased interest in what I was doing was amazing.

MY BIO

When I was diagnosed with coeliac disease, 8 years ago, I wasn’t much of a cook. But I did like food, and I wanted to know how and why gluten was used in cooking. So I decided to train as a chef!! Starting with an apprenticeship at the Waldorf Hotel, winning ‘Apprentice of the Year’, a national finalist in ‘Young chef of the Year’ and securing a ‘stage’ at The Fat Duck. I then went on to work in various hotels and restaurants before setting up Wild Thexton, a gluten free catering and artisan baking company. In 2012, I was runner-up ‘Gluten free Chef of the Year’.

MY BUSINESS TIPS

Work efficiently. There's no point working a 90-hour week if you spend half of it faffing, be organised and work hard. It's amazing what can be acheived.

@freefromfairy also making a loss isn't always the end of the world. Ppl buying product is key, then increase volume, volume=bigger margin.
@freefromfairy it's a sad reality unfortunately. The first 12-18 months are really hard. Being let down, rejection, making no profit etc.
