After leaving school Rudi served his apprenticeship at a leading lakeside hotel and then went to work in top hotels in Switzerland and on the international hotel scene in Kuwait, Malawi, Italy, France and Germany.Rudi’s knowledge of Yorkshire produce would put most locals to shame. He has built up a network of Yorkshire suppliers that he can call on to supply the finest meat, fish, vegetables and cheese to create some stunning dishes. Rudi’s dishes have the fine touch of a classically trained chef with the appeal of rustic, home cooked food.
