Andy Kenney has worked at Grahams on the Green on and off for the past seven years. ‘I’ve had a couple of occasions where I’ve worked briefly elsewhere, but I’ve always come back here.’ He trained at the Colchester Institute and gained valuable experience during a stint in the USA. It’s always been food for Andy, inspired by his food hero, Tom Aikins. ‘I love the twists he puts into his dishes,’ adds Andy. ‘For me, it’s the fact I can use flair to create menus which taste good and look good on the dish too.’ Here Andy shares a recipe for pasta with pizazz.
