Jay had Masterchef winner Shelina Permaloo join him as a guest chef as well as Southampton singer Charlie Mcauley and even top magician Micheal Brown onboard while cruising the solent on the beautiful Princess Caroline.
In this feature Jay explains his love for cooking, be that for himself, for others, for events and even for A-List celebrities. Jay goes on to explain how passionate he is about the personal dining experience. Something which he is eager to offer to anyone who would like a five star dining experience in their own home, or maybe something a little different. Jay is happy to cater to any ideas.
People often ask me who's the best/nicest person I've cooked for. Ive been lucky to cook for so many amazing cool people but...
It has to be This absolute legend Mr Brian May. We had a good old chat about all things food and Queen. Had the pleasure to then go and see them live with the incredible Adam Lambert... Fantastic evening.
Where it all started I have been very lucky throughout my career to meet and cook for some amazing artists. In 2009 it all started with Chris Brown on his FOREVER European Tour. I still have the gloves he gave me as you can see.
Forever grateful for every opportunity I get in this world. This guy never fails to put on a bad show.
Excuse my hair!
A fantastic evening with the very talented Tom Hiddleston. Im glad one of us looks alright with facial hair (definitely not me!).
Bournemouth footballer takes Jay Geddes on in a master chef cook off... who wins?
Had a great evening with Bournemouth player Junior Stanislas. It was a great dinner party but i was challenged to a last minute injury time cook off. It was close but luckily my experience in not burning anything came in pretty handy that evening.
