If you could go on holiday with any chef, who would it be?

Rick Stein! Not only for his passion and knowledge of seafood but the simplicity and freshness of the ingredients he uses.

Last night before lockdown, you have one drink to savour in your favourite bar, what is it?

I’d have to say a ‘properly made’ whisky sour. Not easy to find a decent one nowadays, but when they are well made, they’re hard to beat.

What’s your favourite food and drink pairing?

Sea-bass with a cool and crisp Muscadet. Especially in the summer.

The best place you’ve ever enjoyed a drink?

Sitting on a mountain top in Cape Town with my cousins, watching the sunset with a cooler box of cold beers. Simply mesmerising.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Recently, the full works at Five Guys, with a proper thick shake!

Best ever food experience?

Lobster teriyaki on the 30th floor of a 5-star Tokyo hotel with our own chef, overlooking the city at night. A treat in every sense.

Director

Since 2007 Amy has been entrenched in the industry, experiencing the highs and the lows, working with handcrafted spirit and beer brands. Whilst keeping her finger on the pulse, she’s cultivated a strong understanding of the industry and built an enviable network of contacts and friends.

If you could go on holiday with any chef who would it be?

I’d have to take the Bosh boys and live life on the veg!

Last night before lockdown, you have one drink to savour in your favourite bar?

I missed the taste and feel of a fresh, clean pint of draught beer. I’d nurse a citra heavy extra pale ale and savour every sip!

What’s your favourite food and drink pairing?

A dark chocolate indulgent brownie with a stout, something like Wild Beer’s salted caramel chocolate milk stout. Decadent and extreme!

The best place you have ever enjoyed a drink?

Nothing beats drinks on a Norfolk beach at sunset with friends.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Oh God! Probably a filthy vegan burger or ice cream with peanut butter! Don’t judge me!

Best ever food experience?

Vegan tasting menu at Richard Bainbridges St Benedict’s restaurant in Norwich, honestly, it really blew my mind!
