The Chef

 

Bryan Webb

Bryan Webb was brought up in Crumlin, Caerphilly, in Wales, where his father worked as a mines rescue manager. Experiencing at close hand the realities of mining and the dangers it entailed, he decided early on that the job wasn’t for him. A youthful experience eating at The Walnut Tree in Abergavenny introduced him to good food – he says he was blown away by the simple, but exciting, cooking of Italian-born chef, Franco Taruschio, and decided then that he wanted to be a chef.

He left school at 16, after sitting his last O Level, and started an apprenticeship at The Crown at Whitebrook – the first Michelin-starred restaurant in Wales. Training under head chef Sonia Blech, his daily tasks included washing up and basic prep, but during his three years there he says Blech taught him everything and he gained an understanding of classic cooking, such as steak with peppercorn sauce, and sweetbreads in brioche.
