A highly qualified and experienced television chef with a vast knowledge of the food and catering industry. An understanding of unusual and specialist foods from around the world.
Through my knowledge and experience of the catering industry I was approached by the Welsh television company ‘Agenda’ to present a weekly slot, live on a prime time Welsh language programme called ‘Heno’.
This then led me to present slots on ‘Pnawn Da’ in relation to cooking, tasting panels, fishing and shooting.
I was then approached by a company called ‘Fflic’ to teach the welsh language through cooking to the likes of Janet Street-Porter, Tanney Grey-Thompson and Ruth Maddock.
The success of ‘Cariad at Iaith’ then led me to co-present on a programme called ‘Stwffio’, which was commissioned for the 4th year running and has been nominated for a Welsh and British Bafta. The programme educates young people on specialist world wide cuisine as well as unusual and traditional Welsh foods.
S4C then approached me to co-present on ‘Retro’ a programme that gives families the opportunity to live in an alternative period of time. My role was to educate the families and viewers of the amenities, cooking methods and ingredients available during that specific era. ‘Retro’ was broadcasted for two years and was nominated in the Welsh Baftas.
I have also worked as a presenter on many children television programmes such as ‘Planed Plant’, ‘Bytis’, ‘Uned 5’, ‘Teledu Eddie’ and ‘Rownd a Rownd’.
My career as a chef/presenter has taken me around the world, and I am proud to say that I was one of the very few that was asked by the Welsh Assembly to represent Wales in the “Smithsonian Festival “ in Washington DC back in 2009 ,where I demonstrated live cooking workshops in front of 40,000 people a day.
During the last two years I have had the opportunity to present a live Saturday morning programme called “Stwnsh Sadwrn”.I enjoy presenting and ,I am always involved with cooking demonstrations across the country in different food festivals , schools and workshops for people of all ages.
