During his first 5 years in Japan, Trevor worked as head chef at Barakura English Garden (Nagano) and executive chef at the luxury Kayumanis restaurant (Ginza, Tokyo). Then in 2006 he and his wife Hiromi opened their first restaurant the 20 seat, ‘White Fox’ in Oji, north Tokyo.
Specialising in blending French and Japanese cuisine the White Fox quickly developed a reputation for its innovative cooking style and in 2007 Trevor became the winner of the international Eat-Japan original sushi completion. Since then he has appeared several times on Japanese television and published a cookery book with NHK (the national broadcaster).
In 2012 Trevor and Hiromi planned and hosted a two week gastronomic tour of Japan for Michel Roux and 16 of the Roux Scholars. As a past winner, Trevor continues to be an active member of the Roux Scholarship Club and is often in contact with the Roux family and his career mentor Michel Roux Snr.
Following nine years of successful trading the White Fox had out grown its small premises in Oji and closed in August 2015. To further develop his food concept Trevor teamed up with the Tokyo based ‘G’s Diner’ restaurant group and opened the current ‘WHITE FOX Shinjuku’ in May 2016.
