Peter Walters


Welcome to my cookery website. Come and share in the skills I have developed over many years working as a professional chef. There are some time honoured classics and some new innovations. You will be able to seek out your favourite ingredients to make food that you like and also recipes featuring some newly available produce for those you've yet to try.

Having cooked in the acclaimed Hotel Bellevue Palace in Berne Switzerland and at The Dorchester Hotel Park Lane London. In these locations serving the rich and famous.

As a Master Chef of Great Britain I have been a Head Chef in many hotels in and around Greater Manchester and Cheshire. My experience incorporates work in five star hotels, Shrigley Hall Hotel Golf & Country Club, event catering, fine dining restaurants and banqueting.

I've been involved with food since I was born, like every one. Having worked in hotels, restaurants, canteens and even private residences I thought I'd find somewhere to store my recipes and at the same time share them with anyone else that wants to use them. I'm particularly interested in getting young people to cook. There is so much bad technique and confusing information out there. Whether it's in glossy magazines or the latest television programme.

Learn the basics, learn a few simple formulas, learn to buy fresh ingredients, learn to buy seasonal if you like, learn to use no additives, learn to enjoy cooking the meal more than eating it. Go on take up the challenge, follow the step by step instructions as you prepare a feast fit for a king, or even just a tasty snack for a leisurely lunch.
