    Alex

    Hello, I'm Alex and I help the team here to work with our retailers, making sure that we sell the right dishes in the right places! I love pretty much all the Bigham's dishes and try to taste as many as I can each week, but my favourite would have to be the Chicken Tikka Masala. I currently hold the record for most Bigham’s eaten in one sitting – it was a mountain of Macaroni Cheese and it will take some beating!

    Nistha

    Hi, I’m Nistha and I work in the Supply Chain team here at Bigham’s. It’s my job to help make sure that all our lovely retailers have plenty of our dishes on their shelves for everybody to enjoy! My favourite Bigham’s dish would have to be Chicken Tikka Masala – nothing beats it!

  • Lukasz

    Lukasz

    Hi I’m Lucasz and as a quality manager, surprise surprise, it’s my job to make sure that everything is of the very best quality, looking at all the feedback we get to see how we can make things even better. It’s great discovering what people really love about our dishes, and I’m very lucky to work with passionate people in such a varied role. My favourite dish would have to be the Chicken Tikka – though closely followed by Fish Pie! Outside of work, I’m really into photography and driving (fast!!!) on track, so I’m a big Formula 1 fan. I wouldn’t mind being let loose in one of their cars…

  • Tabassam

    Tabassam

    My name is Tabassam and I oversee all of the ingredients coming in to us – as well as the final dishes leaving us! I make sure only the very best ingredients are allowed into our kitchens, and that all of our dishes are perfect when they leave. I’m a fan of all of our dishes really, but my favourite has to be the fish pie.

  • Michael-S

  • Abby

    I’m Abby and I work in the Food team, developing recipes and launching new dishes. I love the variety of my job; from spending time in the kitchens trying out new recipe ideas, to the daily checks we do making sure all the dishes we’ve made that day taste perfect! Outside of work I enjoy being outdoors - anything from skiing to hiking in the alps and camping out at festivals. My favourite Bigham’s dish is Lasagne because of all the delicious layers!

I spend as much of my spare time as possible sailing, skiing and running – so I like to think I deserve a bit of downtime with a Bigham’s Tikka every now and again. Best enjoyed with great wine and great company – bliss.
