Jeff Baker

A little bit about Jeff

Having begun his career in a professional kitchen in 1983, Jeff Baker has since cooked for the Queen, and worked alongside some of the world’s top chefs, such as Pierre Koffman at the Tante Claire, Christian Germain at Chateau Montreuil, and Brian Turner and Nigel Davis at Greenhouse, Mayfair.

Jeff was recognised for his culinary talents in 1995 with a Michelin Star at Pool Court, a first for the city of Leeds. At the time Jeff was the youngest ever chef in Yorkshire – at 26 years of age – to receive the prestigious award, which he held onto for a decade before founding the more relaxed Bistro Moderne in York, and since then now working for Farmison & Co.

It’s fair to say then that as our development chef, our food quality is in safe hands with Jeff, who has worked in the most respected of kitchens. As an expert on food, Jeff identifies for us at Farmison & Co the farms and producers which harvest the best foods and which yield the best results in the kitchen. Jeff also feeds us a steady stream of seasonal recipes, answers any culinary questions, and deals with customer queries.
