Peter Vaughan: Company Director & Executive Chef

Having trained with the elite of the culinary world Peter went on to work in Michelin star restaurants in UK and abroad, before founding The Bistro restaurant and, subsequently, Vaughan's Kitchen & Cookery School. He chose to leave the arena of fine dining to investigate more about food as fuel for the body, creating his 'naturally balanced' style of cuisine. As well as his Level 4 culinary and teaching qualifications, he has a Diploma in Nutrition, Bodycare and Herbalism.

As a member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts he knows some of the tops chefs really well and including Hywel Jones, who has taken on some of Peter's  former apprentices at Lucknam Park.

Peter's culinary style is creative, inventive and delicious ~ with the Vaughan's Kitchen team he devises exciting food for a vast array of events and his classes and team building sessions are inspiring creative and a lot of fun.

He has an energetic and dynamic teaching style so learning from him is never boring.  

Away from work he loves spending time with his family. His sons are becoming expert foragers, love wild swimming and are keen to know when they will be old enough to go to the gym with him!
