South St Standard

To quote the Fresh Prince:
Exeter is where I was born and raised, in the kitchen is where I spend most of my days.
I’ve been the head chef of the South St Standard for some 10 months now. With my passion for fresh seasonal food, my obsession has always been to push the boundaries when creating flavours. My love for all things food allows me to fuse cuisines together seamlessly and without compromise to create dishes that bring different styles together. Never settling for the ordinary whether it be a meat dish, vegetarian, vegan or a dish to cater for those with dietary requirements. I relish in the challenge to cater for all tastes.
