Meet the Team...Brandon Head

1st October 2021

Today I sat down for a chat with Brandon Head, a key member of the Angel team.

Brandon is the Angel’s Chef de Partie, working with Head Chef Elly Wentworth at the Angel ever since she came to the beautiful town of Dartmouth 4 years ago.

Brandon was born and lived in Plymouth until he was 12, when the family moved to Dartmouth. So he is a Devon lad through and through. He has worked in various places around the town, including Rockfish and the Royal Castle Hotel since he was 13, preferring to get stuck in with food related practical tasks above anything. But he was a bit of a bright spark at school…

Brandon is a teeny bit shy about letting on what an intelligent boy he is. Due to study Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Business Studies for A Levels; he had thought he might work within the medical sector, but once the ‘chef’ bug bit that was it. In his own words ‘cooking is my hobby, if I am not doing it, I am thinking about it!’.

Such dedication is rare in a 23 year old: Brandon just wants to work hard and succeed as the best chef he can possibly be, determined to become a head chef during his career. He would dearly love to own his own restaurant at some point in the future.

When I asked what his favourite dish to cook is, Brandon replies…’I am not sure a chef should have a favourite dish to cook, they should have the same passion for everything on the menu. That’s a bit like asking a bricklayer to point out his favourite brick in a wall he has built in my opinion!’

Ahem…good point Brandon! He did however tell us he loves a bar of Aero, and chilling out with his partner Jaylee, who also works at the Angel, maybe with a cheeky beer, on his days off.

Elly speaks very fondly of Brandon ‘He is an absolute star in the kitchen, an integral member of the team and so hard working. He is super intelligent (he keeps telling us this!) and if you have need of a quiz team member then Brandon is your man, his general knowledge is second to none!'

So next time you are dining with us, or walking past, wave hi to Brandon, and maybe ask him to join your quiz team.

Half time nibbles are sure to be amazing!
