Gill was born and raised in Liverpool, where she grew up with real quality home cooking. These family recipes have trickled through in to her much-loved menus and dishes she creates and serves today. Cooked with as much love now, as was then.
After spending part of her youth travelling and living abroad, Gill soon developed a passion for cooking and for the local cuisines she encountered on her travels. She was able to experience the joy of creating beautiful dishes through flavours, textures and vibrant ingredients.
This passion developed and ultimately drove her to the creation of GBH Catering.
This love and flare for cooking lead to the opening and running of her first successful Italian restaurant, a family run entity in the heart of Essex. After 9 successful years, (and 4 children later) the opportunity to work for Arsenal Football Club arose.
Gill was approached by the original Academy Manager, to establish from scratch and run the entire food operations on site at the Academy, for both staff and players. For the last 8 years, Gill and her catering company have provided a superior service that has gained her recognition across other Premier League clubs.

Gill has truly built a fantastic reputation through her cooking skills and delightful dishes. She is privileged to continue to provide personal chef duties for a current pro footballer and their family as requested.
