“Travelling has allowed me to try new techniques and ideas as well as develop my own recipes and dishes. You are never too old to learn!

“It’s a very old craft and you can experiment a lot with different cuts and marinades but one thing I love the most is hearing the feedback from customers; I love to put a smile on their face when they return and tell me about the meals they have created.”

Turnbull’s are delighted to welcome Søren on to the team with his repertoire of international flavours and techniques.
