Meet The Chef

Hello everyone!

I'm Vanessa and I live in Chagford, on the edge of Dartmoor, Devon.  I moved here with my husband, John and daughter, Allegra in 2014.

We took over an old pub in Chagford that had been closed for a couple of years.  We renamed it, using the location in its new name.  Our focus was on food - we wanted it to be food led.  This was John's vision - a vision that was fresh, modern but maintained the tradition of this old tin mining town.

It was beginning to become rather successful but in 2017, John was diagnosed with cancer and sadly died towards the end of 2019.  See the article written on Devon Live 

Food was always an important factor in our life together so it made sense to continue this but on a smaller scale and preparing and cooking the kind of food that I enjoy.  I love food from around the world - I love the colours, vibrancy and intense flavours and this is all reflected in Wild Dartmoor Kitchen.
