MEET NICK EVANS, OUR HEAD CHEF LECTURER AT RICK STEIN’S COOKERY SCHOOL, PADSTOW

Nick, Head Chef Lecturer at Rick Stein’s Cookery School, first joined our team in 2001 and what he doesn’t know about fish isn’t worth knowing. After working his way up to Head Chef at St Petroc’s Bistro, including a good few years as Sous Chef our flagship, The Seafood Restaurant, he took the lead at our cookery school in 2016. His passion for seafood cookery is truly infectious.
