My name’s Alex Smith, I’m 25 and live in Tenby. I’m currently the Sous Chef at St Brides Spa Hotel in Saundersfoot. I’ve been a chef since I was 14 years old, where I started at my auntie’s and uncle’s restaurant. They taught me all my basic skills to become a chef. Since then I’ve worked in hotels, bistro restaurants, and fine dining restaurants so I have a good understanding of different kitchens. I’ve also done some work in a Malaysian restaurant to learn a different style of cooking.
