Who's Cooking?

Neil Jewell

Neil was born in South-end-on-sea in England.  From the moment he could taste, smell and see, he fell in love with his first life-long partner and heavenly temptress, food.

Surrounded by his mother’s freshly baked cakes and the family cooking-apple tree, his dreams and young devotion to food were nurtured and fed all the best ingredients. From the day he picked up his first handful of flour, Neil’s future was decided.

His family moved to the city, leaving behind the freshly baked cakes and their cooking-apple tree.  Both parents began working and Neil took on the role as family “head chef”.  No one had any idea he would be so good at it.

After school Neil studied at the South-East Essex College of Art and Technology and honed his skills in the kitchens of Stephen Bull, Richard Corrigan and Jon Bentham. 

Neil started at Bread and Wine in 1999 and has been an instrumental aspect of its success.  His food and approach are like a bit out of his personality – fresh, tasty and infused with a passion for life.  He constantly charters new territory, which has ensured that his scrumptious Charcuterie is used by restaurant far and wide. 

Neil’s hard work and zest for life have paid off.  He now lives a charmed life on Moreson Farm.  It is a complete circle and sees a return to Neil’s childhood experiences.  He shares this life with his vivacious wife, Tina, a first class chef, Front-of House Manager and bread-baker extraordinaire, and their two gorgeous daughters.
