Chef’s Page



Jason has been Head Chef at The Raven since June 2013.  His psyche is thoroughly embedded in all things culinary and his enthusiasm, talent and passion for cooking is inspirational.  Jason loves nothing more than the unexpected arrival in the kitchen of some seasonal, often foraged local produce– perry pears, ramsons, rainbow chard, berries – all gleefully received and incorporated into wonderful dishes.

Jason appeared in the BBC Great British Menu in 2014 and received a near perfect 9/10 for his main course from highly acclaimed chef Marcus Wareing. Jason will return to our screens later in the year as he competes to represent the Central Region in this years BBC's Great British Menu. In this series chefs compete for the chance to cook at a glorious banquet marking 100 years of the Women’s Institute at London's historic Drapers Hall. Jason will turn to his mother and grandmother for inspiration in this series and will look to develop their home-cooked classics, into modern masterpieces.

Jason is often out and about displaying his skills with demonstrations at the 2014 Ludlow Food Festival and, more recently, at the 2015 Shrewsbury Food Festival.
