Louise McIntyre

Secretary Hospitality Health & Home Economics Teacher.

  • What was your favourite subject at school?

At the risk of being cliché, Home Economics. I also loved Admin – but this was due to being in a class with all my friends..

  • What was your first job?

Part of the events team in House 5, One Devonshire Gardens

  • Which is your favourite restaurant /hotel?

An impossible question!? But if I HAD to..

Hotel – The Wynn in Las Vegas, hands down the best buffet known to man.

Restaurant – The Violet Green in Norton, Stockton-On-Tees. The food, the staff and the décor if just perfect. If you ever have the pleasure of being in this lovely town, you NEED to go.

  • How do you inspire your team

I don’t have a team – yet! As of (fingers crossed) August I will be in my probation year as a Home Economics teacher. I hope to inspire the next generation of chefs and front of house, more young people need to know how brilliant working in hospitality is.

  • Which person in hospitality have you most admired / inspired you?

Can I have 2?

Firstly, without a doubt my dad – Gordon McIntyre, the founder of Hospitality Health. From a very young age he taught me how to cook and be a good human being. He still inspires me every day.

Secondly, Andrew Fairlie. My “P7 Project” was on Cooking, from the moment I got to go to Restaurant Andrew Fairlie to ask Andrew a few questions, it was confirmed this is what I wanted to do. A true gentleman and a complete master in his craft.

  • How do you manage your stress levels?

I get stressed pretty easy, much to my (and everyone else’s dismay) A nap and a cold beer, in that order.

  • Instagram, Twitter or Facebook – and why?

Instagram all the way. All my friends use it, and I love seeing food photos.

  • If you had not gone into hospitality, where do you
    think you would be now?

I genuinely have no idea. I’ve only ever wanted to be a chef..

  • What did you do on your last days off?

Walked around Kelvingrove park with my 2 best friends and our mini sausage dog Stanley, then made a Sunday roast.

  • What do you do to relax, to support your wellbeing?

I’ve been spending a lot less time on my phone – specifically social media, although it is great, its very easy to become consumed by other peoples “perfect” life. And now with our pup, a lot more walking which has been amazing.
