Glenn Noel

Born and raised in Jersey, Glenn has always had a passion for food and cooking. At 16, he joined the Academy of Culinary Arts at Highlands College and worked for the Royal Yacht Hotel in Cafe Zephyr.

He completed his diplomas at Highlands College and received a Medal of Excellence from City and Guilds. At 19, he won the Channel Islands Young Chef of the Year in 2011. He then went to work at the Michelin-starred Ocean Restaurant at the Atlantic Hotel and spent a few years there under Mark Jordan before moving to the three-time winner of the World's 50 Best Restaurants, Noma in Copenhagen.

After Noma, Glenn worked for Tom Kerridge at The Hand and Flowers before moving back to Jersey and taking charge of the pastry section at The Atlantic Hotel.

In 2016, Glenn moved to France to work for the renowned chocolate company, Valrhona, at their school based in Versailles. After 2.5 years and a promotion from assistant to teacher, Glenn was offered the position of Valrhona Pastry Chef for the Middle East, India, and Africa, based in Dubai. Covering 23 countries, he was responsible for sharing the Valrhona know-how and coordinating the pastry activity across the zone. He conducted many master classes, demos, and consultancies during his time at Valrhona and built a large network of colleagues and friends, to which he still holds close ties.

After nearly 4 years in the Middle East, Glenn decided it was time to move back home and start Ganache Jersey. Away from Ganache Jersey, Glenn continues to consult and actively shares his knowledge internationally in demos and masterclasses.
