We’re the bear family.
I live in Sheffield, England, with my wife Claire bear, our daughter Alice bear, our son Bradley bear, our granddaughter Isabelle bear and our furry spotty bear, Basil, our Dalmatian. I’m super grateful to have a loving family and cherish our time together. When we have our extended family around, cooking at home is like a PopUp restaurant operation which I love.
Food I love.
Influenced by my travels and working on Super yachts for 15 years, I love to cook food from all over the world.
My favorite food is Thai and Japanese whilst I could never be far away from a good old Sunday roast dinner. I also love Italian, French, Spanish, Indian, Middle Eastern, Mexican and of course, British cuisine.
I love to travel, see different cuisines, and see how they embrace there own unique food cultures. On my travels, one thing is noticeably, people love to come together and share great food and have good times.
That’s why I love Thai food, the culture of street food and its people, amaze me. It’s a great culture of beautiful people who share food that is so fresh and so tasty.
My ambition for PopUp Chef
Bringing people together to experience good times. For me, life is to be cherished and my aim is to create catering events to remember.
