His passion for cooking started early on, and by the age of 15 under the watchful eye of his mentor, his training began. “I was fortunate enough to have expert training and mentoring, which later opened up a whole new world of exciting opportunities to me, including working the summer season in Switzerland.” The knowledge and skills he has gained, have given him the insight and understanding of how important it is to work closely with clients.

Over the years Mark has integrated apprentices into his team as he believes that with the right mentoring and guidance, they can add value to your organisation. “My ultimate goal would be to open an academy, a place where through training, we could inspire young people to have a career in the hospitality industry. I want to be able to share my skills and years of experience by reinvesting in the industry. I love what I do, it’s been an incredible journey and I’m ready to take it to the next destination.”
Chef, Mentor and Photographer
Wesley Chamberlain has been creating food for over 17 years, a craft that has given him the opportunity to travel the world.
His training began at The Academy of Culinary Arts in Dorset, where on completion he headed to London. Under the guidance of head chef and Patron Martin Lam at Ransoms Dock, he was able to learn new skills.
In the years that followed, Wesley firstly worked at Cigala, an authentic Spanish restaurant favoured by celebrities, in London’s legal and publishing district, owned by the talented and inspirational Jake Hodges.

Educational and Office Manager
Andrea Morgan-Huntley’s introduction to the world of hospitality began in her teenage years in the historical market town of Richmond, North Yorkshire.
It was whilst working in one of the town’s busiest hotels that she decided to embark on a career in the hospitality industry. By the age of 16 she had enrolled onto a catering course at York College, continuing to work in the hotel at weekends and over the holiday periods. Working in housekeeping and front of house and then as a general assistant.
Her next step on the hospitality ladder was in management, and after completing a course at City College Norwich she became a member of the Hotel Catering and International Management Association (now Institute of Hospitality) and spent the next 6 years working in London, Scotland, Switzerland and Australia. On returning to England, Andrea worked at a hotel in St Albans and then Windsor. It was here that she had the opportunity to use her exceptional managerial and organisational skills as the conference and banqueting coordinator and revenue manager.
Andrea is passionate about education and loves learning new skills, so in 2007 she followed her heart and enrolled at Edge Hill University, where she successfully gained her BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS.
"I want to combine everything I’ve learnt in the world of hospitality (especially nutrition) with education. There is so much conflicting information that people are easily confused when it comes to diet and nutrition, so it’s essential that we educate children and young people in the importance of diet and health plus cooking and food safety."
As part of the Sweet P team, Andrea is the office manager and education adviser. Andrea still works part-time as a primary school teacher and when not busy with that she is supporting her husband to run the company.

Chef and Mentor
Daniel Hargreaves is a Yorkshire based Chef with over 15 years cooking, mentoring and consultancy experience. He started his career in an Italian restaurant, where, for the first 2 years he spent his days chopping onions and peeling garlic.
As time passed, the owners began to see how passionate he was about food and his insatiable hunger for knowledge, so they recommended him to a couple of local restaurants that served home-cooked classic food. He worked across the two restaurants 7 days a week over the lunchtime and evening services.
From here, Daniel was approached to help with the opening and running of a Bistro in Scarborough, and it was here at the age of 21 he became a Head Chef. The Bistro was so successful that it was able to expand the business and cater for banquets, events and private functions.
Daniel's next project was the opening and running of the restaurant at the local Theatre. "I loved every minute it! Being able to create a menu using foraged and locally sourced, seasonal produce was fantastic." A 200-acre working farm with accommodation and tearooms, was where Daniel had to use all of his skills and knowledge to modernise, streamline and increase revenue and help make the business more profitable, which he did with passion!
When he’s not busy cooking, Daniel spends his time producing the award winning Hegehogger Cider, and is an associate of the expanding community apple press in Seamer where he lives, and where ‘apples and pears are turned into liquid gold!’
