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."
