34-year-old James Reeson began his career at the age of 15 in a tiny French restaurant in Bristol, England, where he served as an apprentice chef for two years. He left the Old Dart and moved to Paris, where he worked as a chef for nine months in a little café off the Champs-Elysées prior to hitching down the coast to St Tropez, Cannes and the Mediterranean where he cooked on private yacht charters for a couple of summers.
In 1993 James moved to Australia and fell in love with the limitless skyline and the people. Today James is focusing his boundless energy and passion for food on his latest venture, hosting The Occasional Cook on the ABC.
