Our fabulous Head Chef, Mauli comes to the Turks Head with an award winning global profile. His training in his native India was in classic French cooking. He started his career under the guidance of Antonio Carluccio, becoming part of a team gaining accolades as one of the Top Ten Italian restaurants in India.
Following a move to England in the early 2000’s his career lead him to different areas of the country, gaining local knowledge and understanding of the abundance of seasonal produce in the UK. During this time, which also included a stint at the famed Old Bridge at Huntingdon, he was able to progress through the kitchen ranks to Sous Chef at the Inn at Woburn, under a former Head Chef for HM the Queen.
His most recent position was as Head Chef at the Black Lion in the ever beautiful Long Melford, gaining a well earned reputation for fantastic locally sourced dishes. This has been the perfect opportunity to immerse himself in the Suffolk countryside and the amazing local game in particular. His menus at The Turks Head will reflect his fabulous career and use the finest local ingredients.
