Ross Boslem

Ross spent 3 years at Big Bite Catering training as an apprentice before spending 2 years at Scotland’s only 2 Michelin star restaurant, Andrew Fairly at the Gleneagles Hotel, along with a stagiaire at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Here, Ross was able to develop his culinary experience further, expanding his knowledge in modern cooking techniques and trends.

On his return to Big Bite Catering in 2016, he brought this valuable knowledge with him and rose to the position of Head Chef. Since, Ross has worked to develop the company’s vegetarian and vegan menus, ensuring Big Bite Catering can offer delicious varied options for all dietary requirements.

During his down time, Ross enjoys going to concerts, football, gaming and fishing.
