Steve White From a very young age Steve was brought up with cooking all around him - from his dad growing fruit, vegetables and herbs in his garden to his mother and grandmother’s cooking jams, chutneys and pickles; as well as fresh bread proving in the airing cupboard. Steve has worked at a number of Newport restaurants including The Ruperra Arms, Bassaleg where he worked for four years and won a number of awards. Steve’s background has mainly been in hotels. He started his catering career 27 years ago from the age of 14 in the kitchens of the Celtic Manor on work experience. He knew this was the trade he wanted to work in. Most recently, Steve has taken on the role as Head Chef for The Sorting Rooms in Rhiwderin. He has turned the dining scene around from a café to a high-end bistro/brasserie.
