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.
