Mark Devonshire Chef Lecturer
After having spent over a decade working for Rick Stein at the Seafood Restaurant in Padstow, Mark took on the role as senior tutor at the Padstow Seafood School, further developing his teaching and management skills. He took these to the next level when he set up a cookery school in Worcester on a working farm at Eckington Manor; however, after working away for a time, the pull of Cornwall became too much and Mark returned to join the chef lecturing team at Cornwall College.
