HOW I TRAVEL

-

MY FAVOURITE FOODIE DESTINATIO­NS ARE…

In the UK, I love Devon for its great little fishing ports and food producers. Pretty much every summer I go to France and Spain. I love restaurant­s such as Quique Dacosta and Restaurant Baumanière in Les Baux de Provence.

THE THING I LOVE MOST ABOUT TRAVELLING IS…

Discoverin­g new cities and what their local delicacies are. I love to spend time in the local markets trying the local produce to get a real sense of the city’s identity through local tastes.

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT­S IN THE WORLD ARE…

There are so many amazing restaurant­s around the world, we are seriously spoilt for choice these days, but the one that stood out for me was French Laundry by Thomas Keller in Washington.

THE STAMP IN MY PASSPORT I’M MOST PROUD OF IS…

Sri Lanka has a firm place in my heart. My wife and I did lots of amazing trips with our children who couldn’t believe their eyes seeing so many incredible wild animals in their natural habitat.

THE BEST WAY TO FIND GOOD FOOD ON HOLIDAY IS…

I always use social media to ask for recommenda­tions, as it’s the best way to get so many incredible responses and ideas easily.

I KEEP MYSELF ENTERTAINE­D WHEN I TRAVEL BY…

Catching up on work! When flying, it’s a segment of time I use wisely to work through my emails.

THE COUNTRY THAT INSPIRED MY CULINARY JOURNEY MOST WAS…

France. I moved to Paris in 1993 to cook with Joel Robuchon and Gerard Boyer at Reims. Joel is someone who really inspired me and shaped my career.

IF YOU VISIT THE LANGHAM, JAKARTA YOU HAVE TO TRY…

Anything from our à la carte Gueridon service of meat carvings. Our Tea Smoked Bass and Spiced Lobster Roll are a must try too.

MY FAVOURITE DISH TO COOK IS…

My home roast chicken and sourdough bread.

WHEN I TRAVEL, I PACK…

Whether I’m away on holiday or travelling for work, I always take my own chef knives with me, without fail. And I always take a little bit of mother with me so I can make my own sourdough wherever I go.
