Aphrodite Fingal-Rock Innes, aka Dixie, chef and finalist of Channel 4’s The Taste is a Professional Cookery graduate of Westminster Kingsway College and all round food fanatic. She comes from a family of food lovers and grew up in the beautiful town of Monmouth, South Wales where her family owned a deli. At the tender age of 4 years old, she was getting stuck into cooking by experimenting with the local and exotic surplus from the shop. There she learnt the importance of good food and developed her knack for creating exceptional flavours. Since she has worked for various catering companies whilst always pursuing her own foodie projects.
“Over the years my infatuation with food has channeled towards (but definitely not restricted me to) a fascination with Eastern Mediterranean foods. I find the cuisine so rich in its food history and culture, which I learn more and more about every day. For me, it’s part of the world that boasts such wonderfully intriguing & exciting flavours that I want to capture those flavours and give them my own unique twist, nostalgic of my own travels and experiences. Food is so personal, not just to me but to everybody and it should be shared; this is my chance to share with you!”
