In the news: James Cochran is representing South East on BBC2's Great British Menu
In the spirit of transparency, we would like to be entirely clear that Mr James Cochran is no longer employed by the Brand. The trademarked brand relates only and entirely to recipes he created while working for the company. It is in no way affiliated or professionally involved in his ventures since departing.
After an extend period of exploring viable ways in which James Cochran might continue his participation in the brand enabled by Rayoela Ltd's investment, negotiations became deadlocked and unfortunately no such deal was struck.
Nonetheless, the owners would like to honour James Cochran's contribution to the brand by donating the entire royalties Mr Cochran chose to forego when he left Rayuela Ltd without reaching an agreement to the charities supported by the business during the period in which he created the recipes.
