Chef jake 😛

My Name is Jake Boughtwood, and I’m a 23yo Apprentice chef at a place called The Victory in West Mersea, Colchester. I goto college at the Colchester Institute where I’m studying towards a NVQ level 3 in professional cookery, which will soon be completed! (hopefully with flying colors 😀 ) I hope to one day find myself working in a top restaurant in London, or even to use my skills to travel abroad.

This is my first ever food blog, So i hope you enjoy it! I plan to be uploading some recipes of dishes that I’ve made, Some howto guides, reviews of cook books and posting on anything i find thats interesting on tinternet! Feel free to follow and comment, and i hope you enjoy my blog!

    Hey Serious Bacon, thanks for stopping by. Your site is pretty cool though I feel you, tis hard to maintain regular posting 🙂 Whilst I love bacon so much, I tend not to include it in my grocery bag these days as you know getting older means some lifestyle change hehe I love to read your recipes still! Keep blogging! See you around!

    Congrats on all of your success–and at such a young age! I admire all you’re doing very much. Am a fan of bacon myself (along with the rest of all mankind) and have been known to infuse bourbon with it 😉 http://wp.me/p2dvv9-sV

      Thanks for the comment liz! believe or not, I’ve only actually been for chefing for 1 year and 5 months, so this really is the tip of the iceberg but hopefully If things keep progressing like they are, big things can happen for me! I’m already looking forward to my future and starting to save to go travelling so all is looking good! Kind regards Jake
