Ian Law

Head Chef

After leaving the army in 2005 I started my catering journey working in local restaurants around Thanet, ranging from beach front venues and wedding venues including Quex park, learning quickly French classic dishes and traditional English food. As I improved I was entered into the taste of Kent awards which I won in 2015 and catered for the award ceremony 5 years running.

I was recognised by Tesco stores and was invited to develop some of their shelf ready meals and recipe boxes. After this I was contracted by Fresca Group and Thanet Earth, and was employed in Germany cooking for various vegetable growers and packers bringing fresh fruit and vegetables into the UK from all over the world.

Continuing on my career I was invited by Eddie Irvine to cook for him and his family personally on his yacht at the Monaco grand prix 2023. During this I joined the royal British legion and was the Head Chef at one of their care homes in the local area due to location. I chose Barchester Care Homes as my next challenge in my catering career, and hope to draw from my experiences to deliver the residents and staff delicious classic dishes to satisfy all.
