Adam’s career began at the Dorchester, London cooking under esteemed chef, Anton Mosimann OBE. Since then, he has cooked at several high profile restaurants – most recently Simpsons, the long standing Michelin-starred restaurant in Edgbaston. In January 2013, Adam and his commis chef, Kristian Curtis achieved the best result ever for a UK team in the Bocuse d’Or – the world’s most challenging and prestigious cooking competition. This May, Adam reached the finals of Bocuse d’Or 2015 when he secured 6th place in the European finals in Stockholm, against some stiff competition.  Diners at The Cross can experience his talent for taste and beautiful presentation.
