Internationally acclaimed Chef Patron of La Petite Maison, Chef Duntoye, will be at the Fair to facilitate a Masterclass on how to build a successful culinary career.
Renowned for his lightness of touch and reverence for the best fresh produce, Chef Raphael began his culinary journey in 1995 when he left a career in engineering to follow a life-long passion for food and cooking.
He joined the Butlers Wharf Chef School in 1995 and following his graduation, spent the next five years earning his culinary stripes under the mentorship of Pierre Koffman, one of UK’s most celebrated Chefs of all time. He later served as Executive Sous Chef at Sketch in Mayfair and as a Senior Sous Chef at the Japanese restaurant Zuma in Knightsbridge, London.
In 2007, Chef Raphael opened the first La Petit Maison in Mayfair, London and has since then expanded the award winning restaurant to five other major metropolitan cities across the world.
Registration is also required to attend Chef Raphael’s Masterclass at the GTBank Food and Drink fair on Tuesday, May 1.
British Chef, bestselling author and TV personality, Pascale, will be at the Fair to treat guests to an exciting Masterclass on how to make perfect desserts.
Before she became one of the biggest names in UK food shows, Lorraine was the first Black British fashion model to appear on the cover of American Elle. Being there and done that, she decided to follow her real passion–cookery–and enrolled for Leith’s Diploma of food and wine course. She later graduated with a first class honours degree in Culinary Arts Management at London’s University of West London.
Lorraine’s mastery of baking has earned her international appeal and accolades. She has been a judge on the UK version of My Kitchen Rules, Food Network’s Holiday Baking Championship in the US and in March 2015, co-hosted one of the UK’s biggest TV programmes, The Nation’s Favourite Food. She also runs a successful blog where she shares her recipes for baking as well as tips for those wishing to embark on a journey to a healthy lifestyle.
