On Monday 15th April, Nathan welcomed Valentine Warner as an honorary Outlaw for an evening of culinary excitement. The evening, compered by Daphne Skinnard (BBC Radio Cornwall), delivered interviews, cooking demonstrations, a seven course meal, six different wines, one well placed cider, and Valentine’s vivacious character; a perfect concoction of delights for a memorable Master Class.
The evening commenced as normal with an interview with the chefs where Valentine, on talking about his career, revealed a professional life that began as an artist. However, it was so overshadowed by his passion for food that he could deny no more a clear calling for change. An accomplished catering career, three cookery books and two TV series later; some might say he made the right call! With a new book to accompany a new TV series in the making; who knows what Valentine Warner’s art pieces may have fetched had he not exchanged the paint brush for a knife all those years ago? However, one thing is for sure; Valentine Warner loves food!
