Swansea’s award winning Cafe TwoCann, has appointed local consultant chef, Kate Taylor, as Executive Chef to develop and drive the restaurant aspect of the business to the highest possible standards.
In her role as Executive Chef, Kate will advise owners, Dennis and Catherine Cann, on developing and introducing menus that will take Cafe TwoCann to the next level in terms of fine dining. She will also help the TwoCann team in the expansion and redesign of the kitchen facilities in order to accommodate the growing increase in evening dining experienced over the last 12 months.
Says Dennis Cann, “It’s great having Kate on board helping and advising us to expand the business. Her reputation is second to none and we recognise that with her input, Cafe TwoCann will very shortly be positioned as one of the top fine dining restaurants in the area.”
Up until May of this year, Kate was Executive Chef at Swansea’s Morgan’s hotel where she was responsible for the day to day running of the busy kitchen including management of all staff , purchasing and menus. Prior to joining Morgan’s in a full time capacity, she began her association with the hotel as a consultant chef back in 2004.
Earlier this summer, Kate took the plunge and decided to follow her dream of establishing herself as a full time, consultant chef. Her aim is to use her first hand experience to support local businesses, like Cafe TwoCann, to expand and develop in the most professional and appropriate manner.
Kate also has experience in working in some of the top restaurants in Marbella Spain and many local people will remember her success as owner and head chef of Number One Wind Street back in the late 1990’s. Her talent and success have also been widely recognised by the media. She has been a featured guest on the BBC’s ‘Rhodes around Britain’, appeared on ITV’s ‘Celebrity Chef’ series and several of her recipes have been included in the book ‘Women’s Chefs of Great Britain’.
Commenting on her appointment at Cafe TwoCann, Kate says, “I was delighted when Dennis and Catherine invited me to work alongside the team as Executive Chef. The cafe is already well established as a lunchtime venue and they have had great success over the past 12 months in introducing evening meals. They are now ready to take the restaurant business into the realms of true fine dining and it’s going to be really exciting working with them to make this happen.
“I am also in discussion with a number of other local restaurants with a view to providing consultancy support and who knows, with everything else going on in the city, together we can position Swansea as the fine dining capital of Wales!”
