John Connell - Chef at SK Foods

John Connell

Head Chef

What’s John's role?

Not many chefs can say they have learned from one of the culinary masters, but John certainly did – and few come bigger than Marco Pierre White. John first plied his trade in New Zealand and Australia before coming to the UK to work with some of the greats, and as well as cooking for Royalty, his stint as consultant chef at Newcastle’s St James Park led him to cook personally for the Magpies’ then captain Kevin Nolan.

John is classically training with 30 years’ experience and admits to being driven by spices and has particular flair for many Pan-Asian cuisines which makes him a perfect fit in the SK kitchen.
