I'm Martin Dawkins, The Rustic Chef, with 20+ years experience in kitchens and mentored by chefs like Marcus Wareing at Petrus and Alex Aitken at Le Poussin. I champion local, sustainable ingredients to celebrate genuine flavours with a low carbon footprint. Whether at food festivals or demonstrations, my goal is simple: to deliver good, honest and easy-to-make food.
Experience the essence of private dining as I bring the restaurant vibe to your doorstep, acting as your personal chef.
I understand the importance of healthy eating and the many benefits of planning weekly meals.
As The Rustic Chef I believe that live demos go beyond showcasing skills—find me at a range of events.
Join me at The Rustic Chef Cookery School—a place to unravel the secrets of tasty, homemade meals.
