I've never cooked on a commerical scale. The biggest number I've cooked for is 12 at a dinner party but I loved every minute of it. And I ended up doing the washing up as well.
Richard has spent all his life working with the public and loves it. He describes himself as cool, calm and someone who likes to lead by example. Scott thinks friends would consider him a perfectionist who remains calm under pressure. Scott trained as a chef 18 years ago but now fulfils his passion by cooking for friends and family. His job also ensures he spends many hours preparing and presenting food for his first and business class passengers.
