How long have you worked at the restaurant?
I have been working here since opening the first Brouge in 2005.

What is your signature dish?
Braised lamb shank cooked with a fruit beer, rosemary and garlic jus.

Have you got a top cookery tip for our readers?
Always make sure you have sharp knives and try out your recipes on family first before anyone else.

Is there a top table for diners to choose in the restaurant?
I would recommend Table 24, because it gives you a prime view of everything and is very intimate.

Who, or what, are your main influences as a chef?
My mum and also the different food seasons.

Is there anyone (rich, famous or otherwise) that you have always wanted to cook for?
I would really love to cook for Sir Michael Caine.
