Rupert Cooper Private Chef

Once a professional rugby player. Now an incredibly talented chef. Rupert Cooper learnt from the best at Michelin-star restaurants, including Sat Bain’s in Nottingham, Paul Ainsworth’s No.6 in Padstow and Rick Stein’s. Nowadays he’s the proud owner and Head Chef at Philleigh Way, a Cornish cookery school renowned for its authentic and refreshingly unpretentious approach to cooking great food.
