Who is Olli?

A little about Olli Cooks...

Born in Yorkshire, Olli’s love of cooking started in his early childhood kitchen where he showed great curiosity and enthusiasm especially in copying his Grandmothers cooking techniques. Olli joined an award winning gastro pub team aged 15 then headed to London aged 19 and joined the brigade at Claridges.


An exciting and demanding start to a career which saw Olli working as Senior Sous with Gordon Ramsay and Head Chef with Tom Aikens. During this period Olli also appeared on national television as a finalist in both the Roux Scholarship 2013 and MasterChef the Professionals 2011. Life was certainly busy!


Olli returned to his Yorkshire roots in 2017 launching his company Olli Cooks. Today you’ll find him growing vegetables in his kitchen garden and foraging fresh ingredients to incorporate in his recipes. Olli’s joy of quality cooking and great company make him the secret ingredient for celebrations, dinner parties and tuition your home!"
