Ever since I saw today's guest on BBC 2's Great British Menu in 2020, I knew I wanted to get some time with him on the show.
Now Head Chef at Boiler & Co (https://boilerandco.com), Kerth Gumbs is everything you hope for in a chef working in Hospitality. No doubt he brings the flair and creativity but more importantly, he brings just a wonderful zest and passion for what he does that is incredibly infectious, and we definitely need more of that.
We get through loads including:-
Boiler & Co
Growing up in the Caribbean
Let me knows Pizza
Starting in front of house
Excelling at Track & Field
Moving to the UK
Walking and Running around London
Le Cordon Bleu
The first foray into Michelin Kitchens
Diversifying the knowledge base
Great British Menu Experience
Dreams about chocolate
And so much more. There’s some excellent learning in here all the way through but expecially around resilience and the amazing things that await you if you keep pushing through.
