Gary Dent


Introducing Gary Dent, Your Chef

From the day my Grandfather a master Butcher, gave me my first set of knives when i was fifteen i have been inspired to cook and knew i belonged in a kitchen.

My Route to the Elephants head has been an interesting one. From Westminster Catering college where I was awarded my professional Chefs diploma, I was thrust into Chateau Tignes, St Omer, France. From there i worked my way up the food chain.

The Gaucho Grill in Knightsbridge was a favourite where i worked as head Chef preparing and cooking speciality Argentinian Beef using the finest cuts of Meat. From here i went on to work at Ghillies and the Prophet , At Frankies in Knightsbridge I worked under Marco Pierre White refining my skills In The Culinary world an experience which helped enhance my career as a chef .

Apart from my hospitality passion I also love Travelling and spent a year in Australia working in numerous restaurants and learning about Asian Food and other worldwide cuisines from around the Globe . This has made me realise how ingredients from different places taste depending on the season, the freshness in flavour and source.

I’m Looking forward to stimulating your palates here at the Elephants Head
