PUB chef Rohan Gordon is more used to working behind the scenes than in the full glare of the limelight.

But that might all change after a forthcoming TV appearance which could make his name as a celebrity chef.

Rohan, aged 31, who works at The Hare and Hounds in Sopwell Lane, St Albans, was invited to prepare a dish of his choice on UKTV's food show Market Kitchen.

He said: "They invited me because they know I only use local produce in all my dishes. It was hard cooking stuff out of sequence with four cameras pointing at you."

Fun

On the same show were the culinary double act The Hairy Bikers whom Rohan met up with before the show. He said: "They were great fun - a real laugh."

Rohan made fillet steak with beetroot and potato rosti, curly kale and a garlic jus, all sourced from Hedges Farm and Carpenter's Nursery in St Albans.

Rohan, who hails from Melbourne in Australia, is unsure about a career in front of the cameras

He said: "I think I would miss the feedback from my customers when they come and tell me how much they enjoyed their meals."

His UKTV appearance is due to be screened next Thursday, March 13, at 7pm.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
