Owner, DELI-VERT delicatessen
I’ve been a chef for 15 years and though it seems like a cliché, cooking is my passion. It all started when I went and worked a ski season in a French restuarant and I instantly loved it and returned for a second year. Owning the deli is very different to working in a fast paced cordon bleu restaurant but for me I get the best of both worlds. I get to interact with the customers and still get to use my culinary creativity in whipping up delicious new dishes and baked goods.
Owner, The Lingerie Room
I’m one of those types of people who doesn’t like missing opportunities, and in the past, I saw The Lingerie Room was up for sale. I’ve always been a customer, and when it came back up for sale again, I knew I wanted to buy it. When I told my partner, he laughed, a little shocked, but supported me the whole way. When I want something, I’m very driven and dedicated. My teenage sons aren’t massive fans because they can’t face coming in to a lingerie shop owned by their mum which I think is absolutely hilarious.
