Trevor was then appointed Sous Chef at Babbity Bowsters Restaurant in Glasgow where he gained invaluable experience in a very busy bistro-style food operation.

Between 2000 and 2007, Trevor worked his way up through the chef ranks in various hotels and restaurants, such as Mitchell’s in Glasgow, Head Chef at The Queens Hotel in Bridge of Allan, Head Chef at Shieldhill Castle Hotel, near Biggar, and Senior Sous Chef at Rhubarbs Restaurant, Prestonfield House Hotel in Edinburgh, before taking up the position as Head Chef at Burts.
