“Get experience, show respect, enjoy and love what you do.” Neven Maguire, Celebrity Chef
Neven Maguire loved cooking from a young age. He grew up cooking alongside his mum in the kitchen. It’s therefore no surprise that he followed his passion. Today he owns McNeans Restaurant and Cookery School. He’s well known on TV as a celebrity chef and for his countless cookbooks with Gill and Co.
Here’s his advice on getting started and to people who want to work in this field: “Go and work in a kitchen, get experience, show respect, enjoy and love what you do. The hours are long, so if you don’t really want to do it, then make it your hobby and not your job. It is not a job where you can have ‘off’ days. You have to pay attention to detail each and every day.”
His motto is, ” Get experience, show respect, enjoy and love what you do.”
