Food & stories from a Michelin star apprentice

Chef Jazz once lived a ‘normal’ life in Hastings. She & her parents loved good food and cooking. She dreamed of a life & career in a professional kitchen but just didn’t know where to start to achieve such a burning ambition.

Then she found Vaughan’s Cookery School Professional Kitchen Essentials course with Chef Peter Vaughan & his team in Devizes and her life changed. Jaz excelled during the course, as did the other students of all ages & different motivations. Peter could see the potential in this young chef-in-the-making and recommended her for a Specialised Chefs Scholarship, which results in a Diploma from the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts. She now is an apprentice at the luxury 5 star Coworth Park Hotel, owned by the Dorchester Group, complete with a Michelin star restaurant,
She joined the Vaughan’s Kitchen team to do a set of summer pop-up events at the Dutch Barn in Summer 2020 and many of you may remember her. Taking time off to return to where it all started, she will prepare an Autumn Feast using some of the Michelin star techniques she has learnt. She may even spill the beans on what really goes on in a Michelin star kitchen & life at one of the most expensive 5 star hotels outside London.
