Ricki Weston in conversation with Whistles

Whistles is a much loved British clothing brand that specializes in women’s fashion. The brand is known for its stylish, high-quality clothing that caters to the needs of modern women. They offer well-designed, versatile, and timeless pieces for women juggling many aspects of their life. In addition, Whistles provides an online magazine that delivers reviews, and interviews covering the arts, culture, travel, and food, providing high quality content that engages and inspires their core customer.

We are absolutely delighted that they have included an interview with Whatley Executive Chef, Ricki Weston, exploring his commitment to sustainability and how it sits alongside his Michelin-starred dining experience.

In the interview, Ricki revealed his journey to becoming a chef and how he has developed his own style of cooking, he also notes that we can all be a little too quick to avoid taking time to enjoy the process, from the ingredients to the finished dish.

In an era of convenience, it’s so easy to just pick up the phone and order ingredients but we mustn’t forget our roots. We became chefs not only for our love of food, but also for the appreciation of the produce itself.”

The interview also covers how Ricki manages his commitment and those of Whatley Manor to sustainable practices how this influences how his kitchen operates and how he approaches every process, from menu design to food waste.

“The training and the insight into sustainability we’ve received has left us with only one option – to approach things this way, because it’s the right way.”

It’s a great read delving into the world of a Michelin starred chef who is absolutely committed to sustainability and is equally proud of his Michelin Star and the Green Michelin Star for sustainable Gastronomy.
