Teejay Asciak & The Farmhouse Essex
By his early 20s, Teejay decided it was time to turn an interest into a career, training as a chef at the revered Westminster Kingsway College before being snared by Jamie Oliver as a hot talent.
Roles with Oliver as both a sous chef and new openings chef rapidly earned Teejay his industry stripes, and he moved into the world of corporate catering – and onto the water – working with Fabulous Feasts, a company based on the Silver Sturgeon boat on the Thames.
THE CHEEKY ITALIAN
The next stage? Bricks and mortar. As an Essex boy, Teejay’s home county was always where he wanted to open a restaurant, and when lease on a rural farmhouse site near the historic town of Waltham Abbey came up, it proved just too tempting.
THE FARMHOUSE ESSEX
With its crowd-pleasing menu, sharing feasts and Sunday roasts, and a shop filled with local specialities, The Farmhouse Restaurant Essex offers something for everyone – and, as a family-run enterprise, Teejay’s insistent that everyone in the family is welcome.
And there’s more in store for The Essex Farmhouse. It’ll also function as a platform for celebrating local produce and talent; putting on themed pop-up events, hosting food fairs, and putting this part of Essex firmly on the culinary map.
