Michelin Man


Paul began his career in catering at the age of 20. Since then he has instinctively known that being a chef was for him.After completing three years of catering studies, Paul secured roles at various Michelin-starred restaurants, including Canterbury's 74 Restaurant, Juniper and Gidleigh Park. He later moved to Nunsmere Hall Hotel in Cheshire as Head Chef where his partnership with Katie O'Brien began.

His creations yield unexpected combinations of flavours that complement rather than compete. Paul and Katie relocated to Edinburgh and opened the award-winning 21212, a Michelin star restaurant with rooms, in May 2009.
