Growing up in a large family as one of six children Aaron Janes was surrounded by good food. His mother was a traditional cook, using fresh ingredients and baking fabulous cakes, his father owned and ran a successful restaurant, from here the interest and passion of chefing developed.

With a keen interest in all things culinary, Aaron craved more experience, spending a number of years in Switzerland and France, sharpening his skills under the guidance of the British Combined Culinary Art Team and legendary chef Gary Dawson. Following this experience abroad, Aaron created a vibrant international flavour. In 2003 Aaron placed his roots in Cornwall.

Aarons love of local, seasonal and fresh ingredients make up his flavoursome and simple menus – the most important aspects of cooking.

Aaron has many accolades. He has achieved a rosette, won the Cornish Ice Cream Challenge with his Apple Pie Ice Cream Pie with Edible Orchard and has been a finalist on numerous occasions in Cornwall Catering of Excellence.

Aaron looks forward to sharing his dream with Al, his team and you his guests.
