We asked Chris a series of questions regarding his famed Sunday Roasts, take a look at his answers below!

1) What’s your favourite part of cooking a Sunday Roast?

My favourite part of cooking a Sunday Roast is sending out a meal that customers enjoy. When you prepare and cook meals in a restaurant, it’s a great feeling when you see customers enjoying the food and appreciating the hard work.

2) What’s the biggest challenge when preparing Sunday Roasts in a restaurant?

With Sunday Lunches becoming increasingly popular, the biggest challenge for me is prepping enough ingredients. I would definitely recommend booking a table and it helps me out too.

4) Have you ever been inspired to experiment with different ingredients or condiments in your Sunday Roasts?

Like all chef’s I like to experiment different flavours at home. However, Sunday Lunch is a tradition that customers understand. So experimenting? No, I think it’s best to stick to tradition by using fresh local ingredients cooked with care and passion.

5) How important is it for locals and visitors to have a ‘go-to’ restaurant such as Spooner’s for their Sunday lunch?

It’s really important to have a go-to establishment that you like and trust as it’s reassuring knowing beforehand that you are going to receive a good quality meal every time you visit.

In my opinion, people often associate the traditional Sunday Roast with fond memories of growing up and sharing a meal with family and friends. It’s a comforting meal and has spanned many generations!
