Woody was born and raised in the area, attending Dog Kennel Hill Primary School and Bacon’s College. His love for creating beautiful food began whilst at university studying mathematics and philosophy. 

Woody has spent the past five years working with food including training with Moxons Fishmongers on Lordship Lane and Burro e Salvia, East Dulwich. He has set up a small business selling healthy sweet treats in a not-for-profit deli, worked for one and half years in Amsterdam’s premier delicatessen Slagerij De Leeuw, worked for a year as a chef and on occasion Head Chef at Peckham Bazaar.  

Woody’s passion lies in working with fresh, seasonal British ingredients. He has an allotment in which he grows the food he then cooks, a model he is keen to develop. Woody is committed to ensuring that the food he creates is as wonderful as it is local, seasonal and nutritious. Woody is responsible for the development and delivery of our food and drink offering.
