Glorious food


A globetrotting chef entertains the WI.

The room was really packed when Stanhoe and Barwick WI and visitors from neighbouring villages were privileged to have Robert MacNaughtan speak on the theme of “My life as a chef”.

From an inauspicious start with part-time work on a Romford market stall, selling fabrics from an East End warehouse and washing up in his uncle’s restaurant, Robert was offered a place on a course at Westminster College. This prestigious training led to work as a chef at the Grosvenor Hotel, the Post Office Tower revolving restaurant, many London restaurants, and catering for many famous private clients, before moving into management.

These jobs were interspersed with travels to 44 different countries worldwide, working casually in all to explore the foods, and ending up with a liking for Japanese and Asian foods.

Whilst speaking, and entertaining us with funny tales of his days working with food, he quickly created a beautiful Seafood and Asparagus Summer Pudding, making it look so easy.

We all had a most enjoyable afternoon and were happy to collect donations to a local kidney charity on his behalf.
