Aaron Tighe


Aaron is the C-of-M's executive chef. He comes from a family of restaurateurs and has been cooking professionally since his late teens, although his passion for cooking and experimentation began much earlier.

He has enjoyed a diverse career having worked as a violinist and conductor before embarking on a career in new media, working as an internet or “dotcom” evangelist. He has worked in Europe, Asia, Middle East and the USA. Cooking, wine tasting and writing about food has remained a constant throughout.

He has been writing and blogging about food since the late 90s, starting with and has continued with contributions to many sites.

What I love best about Aaron's [blog] post, besides seeing the perfect looking duck breast, is that this cook is evaluating and thinking and fixing ... it's nice to see the thoughts and actions described because really that's the essence of cooking.
