About Ian Boden

Ian Boden is a local Staffordshire chef, settling into Staffordshire life after a very successful career in the food industry.  Ian’s previous roles included working as a chef creating Michelin starred meals at coveted venues such as The Belfry luxury resort and a French restaurant in the West Midlands, The Vineyard in Berkshire and the Birmingham Swallow, a world class five star hotel where Ian took on the role of senior chef de partie.

After a very successful restaurant career Ian now focuses on food consultancy, teaching and private dining.  Ian has acted as development chef for many of our food photography & filming days  and created bespoke menus for our private dining events.

All of Ian’s cookery courses, private dining events and food styling events are carried out with flair and proffesionalism.  Located in Staffordshire, Ian is one of our most local chefs and we enjoy having him as part of the cookery school team.

Ian is classically trained and his passion is tasty, modern British cooking.  His friendly approach to teaching makes his cookery courses a fun filled day, inspiring guests to master their new found skills at home in their own kitchens.
