After leaving Fred Longworth High School, Jonathan studied for an NVQ in food and drink at South Trafford College. That was followed by a further course in professional cookery and working part-time at Michael Caines @Abode. He's followed that up by working as a barristers clerk interspersed with working alongside Sunday Brunch celebrity chef Simon Rimmer who along with his other culinary heroes, has been the inspiration for his current venture at the Cadence Cafe.
On asking Jonny as to future goals he's nothing if not ambitious when he said - "Well, I'd like awards for the food, I'd love rosettes as there isn't anything against pop up restaurant being awarded like that! I would have a two year goal of gaining 3 rosettes."
