In 2008 James left his career as a barrister and won BBC’s amateur MasterChef competition. Since then he has developed as a chef by immersing himself in some amazing restaurants. The inspirational kitchens he has worked in include Le Gavroche, Bentleys Oyster Bar, The Bath Priory, Gidleigh Park, Bras (France), and The Seafood Restaurant, Padstow. Each of these destinations has helped hone his skills so that he is now a polished professional.
James opened his first restaurant in February last year – The Green Room’ at Retallack Resort and Spa in Cornwall where his unique style of food is quickly gathering a large following. To find out more see @GreenRoom_JN or visit www.retallackresort.com.
