Anthony Clarke

Chef

Tony has cooked since an early age as he felt this was a seemingly natural step after gaining his catering qualifications in the early ’90s.

Tony himself is in recovery since 2016, making him an understanding addition to our team. He can prepare treatment-specific meals with the best ingredients and from proven recipes. Since 2016, Tony has attended college and volunteered at his local drug service. It was there where circumstances lead Tony to start and manage “The kitchen table” – a volunteer-staffed, self-funded weekly community cafe serving 3-course meals and providing support. This has lead to Tony’s reawakened love of cooking and brought him to the attention of Oasis Runcorn, and the rest is history.
