Mike will be joining us at the Country Living Fair Kitchen in London on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th November. 

Born in England and brought up in Nigeria, Saudi Arabia & Germany, Mike got a taste for exotic flavours and adventurous cooking at an early age. He has explored the cuisines of multiple countries, working in restaurants, on cruise ships and in cocktail bars, as a chef, barman, waiter and manager.

Mike has spent a good part of the last two years in Greenland – kayaking, cooking and researching and writing his upcoming book on fermentation and the food culture in the Arctic, as introduced by the Norse and Inuit over a thousand years ago.

Recipe based, it features traditional methods as well as Mike’s own take on these unknown, soon-to-be classics..

When he’s not adventuring Mike gives talks and demos at food festivals as well as cooking for private events. Finland, Estonia, Faeroes, Iceland, Greenland & Georgia have all hosted Mike recently.
