Meet the Chef: Damian Wager

Damien Wager is primarily a self taught pastry chef, who over the past 24 months has rose towards the top of the U.K. Pastry Chef rankings due to his numerous exploits.

Through his own company, Edible Art Patisserie Limited, Damien has agreed a deal to open his own on-campus patisserie at Cheshire College in early Summer 2019, a deal to launch his debut book ‘Edible Art’ in October 2019, become brand ambassador for both Forest Produce (Specialist ingredients) & HEiH Chocolate (new high-end chocolate company) and has also been invited into the Valrhona ‘Cercle V’ programme for 2019.

Damien’s social media following has no doubt had a positive effect and been a driving factor in his success, but numerous publication articles and features in top magazines, as well as being nominated for ‘Young Chef of the Year’ at the 2018 Restaurant Awards in a category brimming with talent, has certainly propelled Damien onto many chefs radars.

Most recently, Damien has happily taken the position as ‘Patisserie Development Chef’ at Kentisbury Grange and is thrilled to be given the opportunity to work alongside his friend and Head Chef, James Mason.

Meet the Chef: James Mason

James Mason, Head Chef

The Coach House by Michael Caines
Kentisbury, Barnstaple

In 2015 James was the winner of The Young Professional South West Chef Award and we are delighted to have James Mason, aged 26 years, at The Coach House by Michael Caines as our Head Chef.

James started his career 9 years ago at Exeter College as an apprentice before he started work at Michael Caines, The Abode, Exeter. Following this, James also worked at Royal Hospital Road under Gordon Ramsey giving him more work experience, before going to France. On his return, James worked at Michelin Star Restaurant Tristan before his move to a Senior Sous Chef for the Salutation Inn at Topsham, Exeter.

James’s passion lies with training young and upcoming chefs at the start of their apprenticeships as well as his most recent achievement of three AA Rosettes.

The menus created for The Coach House by Michael Caines have been carefully designed to reflect the seasonality of fresh, local produce and if visiting North Devon it must surely be on your list of places to visit.
