Gemma looks after all the money, bills and spreadsheets at Flavours. She is the one who makes sure all the numbers add up and has done so since 2008.
She is passionate about all things ‘Thai’ and loves everything about food, wine and travel. She spends time finding cunningly complicated recipes for her long suffering partner to create and even more time cleaning up after the ‘creating’ has occurred.
She loves dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes, and yes, they do sleep on the bed.
She may bore you to death with stories of her cute grandchild if you let her. We let her because it makes her happy.
Gemma’s favourite menu item is naturally the Thai beef salad.
