Paul Collins

Spotted a mover and shaker in the kitchen hopping about to Madness? That’s our Paul! Not to be confused with lead vocalist for the rock group Genesis, Paul Collins is our executive chef at Yeo Valley Venues and the Willy Wonka to our Yeo Valley Canteen. Sourcing the best from the West and all things delightfully organic, Paul inspires and creates the wonderful dishes that are freshly produced everyday.
