Chris McGregor: A Journey from Childhood Passion to Culinary Excellence

Chris’s story is not just about cooking; it’s a tale of passion, heritage, and the pursuit of excellence. His love for food was kindled in the cozy kitchen of his grandfather’s house, nestled in the serene countryside.

As a child, Chris spent countless hours alongside his grandfather, a man whose hands were as skilled in the art of cooking as they were in telling stories of old. These formative years were not just about learning recipes; they were about understanding the soul of food, its ability to bring people together, and the joy it can spread.

The Coastal Influence: A Chapter in Croatia

Chris’s culinary journey took a significant turn when he spent eight years working in a bustling restaurant on the picturesque coast of Croatia. Here, he honed his skills, particularly in the art of grilling and mastering the intricacies of meat preparation.

The Adriatic Sea’s azure waves and the region’s rich culinary heritage profoundly influenced his cooking style. He learned to blend traditional techniques with innovative approaches, creating dishes that were not only a feast for the palate but also for the eyes.

The Grill Master: Savoring the Flavors of Fire and Smoke

At Cook Advice, Chris brings his mastery of the grill to the forefront. His approach is rooted in a deep understanding of how fire and smoke can transform the simplest ingredients into extraordinary meals.

He believes in respecting the ingredients, letting their natural flavors shine, and using the grill not just as a cooking method but as an instrument to add depth and character to the food.
