David joined The Yurt team in March 2022 and graced us with his calm and creative presence. With a love of food engrained through his upbringing, David speaks of his experience, inspirations and favourite dish on The Yurt menu.
‘Growing up, my Father was a chef and I spent many of my school years living above pubs and restaurants.’ Surrounded by inspiration and a love of food, David spent many years working in and around London at restaurants such as Ménage a Trois and The Dorchester. With a wealth of experience behind him, he decided to teach catering at an FE college before running a guest house in Devon.
‘I love simple yet tasty food and at home I always cook using the freshest ingredients possible.’
In his free time, David enjoys experimenting with new flavours and creating new dishes. His favourite dish on the current menu is the slow braised lamb with beetroot and celeriac which he would pair with a glass of Gusbourne Brut.
