Chef Jos Wellman
Chef Jos Wellman (aka Tallyrand)

Born in the UK and initially raised in my father’s hometown in Wales, I consider myself a Welshman through and through. Although, with my father in both the Royal and Merchant Navies and later in the Police force we travelled quite a lot as a child, which seems to have given me itchy feet for the rest of my life and a passion for travel as you will see. I guess you could say I am now a displaced Welshman, an adopted Kiwi and a citizen of the world.
