Our Kitchen Crew

this little piggy went to market...

Steve Babillis Sous Chef
 If you were a food, what would you be?
Short ribs, because I put my heart and soul into everything!
 
At what event did you earn your Jeffrey A. Miller chops?

At Appleford. It was the first party I ever did, but there were actually two parts to it. The first was a rehearsal dinner and the second was a wedding reception for the same client.

Who cooks for you and what do you like best?

My wife. I like everything at one time or another, it depends on my mood.

 
Chris Curnew Chef De Cuisine
Natalie Goddard Pastry Chef
 If you were a food, what would you be?
Ginger,  because it can be subtle or strong, sweet or spicy.
 
At what event did you earn your Jeffrey A. Miller chops?

At Chris’ (one of our chefs) wedding. I did a really interesting cake for them that was half and half with a groom’s side and a bride’s side. I think it really showed everyone what I’m capable of!

Who cooks for you and what do you like best?

I cook for myself. I love anything different or interesting and enjoy trying new flavors from all over the world.

Angelo Grasso Executive Chef
 If you were a food, what would you be?

An onion, because it could be sweet, savory or bitter, depending on how it is treated!

At what event did you earn your Jeffrey A. Miller chops?

My first ever event, I was assisting and the head chef had a family emergency and couldn’t come.

Who cooks for you and what do you like best?

My wife; I have to like it!

Abdou Gueye Head Party Chef
If you were a food, what would you be?

I love what I do; I would stay a chef!

At what event did you earn your Jeffrey A. Miller chops?
Many years ago we did a party around Bristol, by the river. It was in the middle of nowhere and we had nothing to work with there: we had to bring everything with us, even the water. At the end of the night, everyone at the party gave us a standing ovation.
 
Who cooks for you and what do you like best?
The only food I can eat is my wife's cooking. I love rice; I could eat rice twenty-four hours a day. I like to eat it with onion and lamb.
Richard Poslett Pastry Chef
If you were a food, what would you be?
I would be a cookie, because you are what you eat!
 
Do you have any interesting hobbies?
I love boats and anything to do with the sea. My father was a boat designer in Bristol, England, and I grew up sailing around the coast of the UK. 
 
Who cooks for you and what do you like best?
Me. My favorite thing to eat is sushi or soup dumplings.
 

 

Derek Steel Research and Development Chef
If you were a food, what would you be?A perfectly roasted chicken?
Any hobbies? I spend a lot of time reading cookbooks. I own hundreds of them. So many things to cook! So many ways to cook! 
Who cooks for you and what do you like best? I usually do the cooking at home. I like just opening the fridge and seeing what I can do with whatever's in there. At any given time, I’m probably obsessed with some particular ingredient or cooking style. A few weeks ago it was French tarragon. Before that it was kimchee.
