Derek's love of food started at the tender age of 16 when he joined The Grosvenor Hotel, London as a trainee chef. With a need to broaden his experience, Derek moved on to work with leading brands Epicure, Lea & Perrins, Princes Foods and John West. With years of experience and an enviable wealth of knowledge, Derek decided to set up Food Finders; he has never looked back.
Derek is a keen gardener, enjoys horse-racing and can be often found at the end of his garden in his beekeeper whites. He is also known, occasionally as Father Christmas.
