Meet the chef: Freddie Fenwick

Head Chef at The Lighthouse
in Kibworth

What’s your first memory of your love for cooking?
As a child, making cakes with my mum. We used to buy those pre-packed cupcake kits.
I loved the whole process, but especially licking the cake mix off the spoon at the end.

When did you know you wanted to be a Chef?
When I was 17 and I got a job as a pot washer at our sister restaurant, Boboli.
I witnessed how the kitchen worked and just fell in love with the buzz of it all.

What do you love most about your job?
So much. I love the camaraderie of the team I work with. I love that I get the opportunity to be creative.
I love that no two days are the same. And I love the buzz. At the end of a shift, I always feel a great sense of achievement, and that I have earnt my sleep.
