Gabby floating on a wild swimming holiday

During her late teens, she went to a course at Edinburgh School of Food and Wine. Gabs’s passion for food really took off there as she was able to learn skills under the guidance of some pretty groovy chefs. This diploma was hard and fast, like some kind of crazy cooking boot camp. After that she went to Australia to teach kids how to swim. In 2002, Gabs took herself of the Caribbean with the grand idea of seeking her fortune. She ended up cooking on charter yachts in the Caribbean. There she dived at every chance she got and gained her PADI Rescue Diver Certification.

The trips on board the yachts gave Gabs a great opportunity to learn flexibility and diversity as a chef in the galley. Guests sometimes neglected to mention that they were a diabetic vegan coeliac until they were 2 hours off shore... nice.

Gabby first leant to swim on the beaches on Rhosneighr, in Anglesey. Gabs’s family are from the island originally and she is very proud of her roots there. The whopping great gouges out of the hill side copper mines are the only lasting reminder of her family's mark!!
