Prior to arriving in Australia, James was Head Chef at the 2AA Rosette Room Restaurant in Manchester, and Head Chef at Milestone in Sheffield. During his time at Milestone the establishment was named “Best British Restaurant” by Gordon Ramsay, as part of his TV program, Best Restaurant, which served as a career-defining moment for Wallis.
The menu was inspired by food waste and takes a look at common ingredients that are normally considered waste and creatively turning them into luxury menu items. With a third of all food produced ending up as food waste, this menu showcases how James is reducing waste and how it challenges him as a chef to think outside the box utilising his skills to re-imagine these humble ingredients.
"My passion for sustainability comes from a passion for the environment and really believing that the way we eat food, can improve society. With food waste being a huge contributor to global warming and massive food inequalities around the world, how we eat can shape our future. Making a change starts with individuals and making small changes to how we cook, shop and eat can make huge differences. As chefs we are have powerful position where we can dictate what people eat through a menu so sustainable cooking shares these beliefs and hopefully lead to change"
