Dan started his career in hospitality at Rogano in Glasgow where he worked as both a chef and waiter, before moving to London in 1990 for a two-year spell at L’Escargot. Following a break to go travelling, he then worked at London institutions including Le Caprice as a Chef de Rang before moving to Daphne’s.
