After studying at Westminster Kingsway College José did a stint abroad and then worked as a chef at the House of Commons for more than 11 years. During his time at the Commons he also took working sabbaticals at some of London's top establishments, including the Intercontinental Park Lane, Mosimanns', The Ritz and the Savoy Grill. While at the Commons he wrote a training manual on game cookery and then took up a lecturing post at Westminster as a chef lecturer in culinary arts. Since then he has become one of the leading game chefs in the UK with knowledge of not only how to cook game but also about its harvest and preparation. José's approach has always been to teach not only chefs but everyday people about the ease in which game can be a part of their every day diet. He travels around the country delivering game cookery demonstrations and bespoke courses on game preparation and cookery at client's homes.
