Her love for fine food propelled her into the kitchens of the Raffles Hotel where she was then schooled in classical French cooking by Pierre Gagnaire, Frederic Bau and Alain Ducasse. On moving to the UK, Loretta became a chef and teacher in Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons, and later taught at Jean Christopher Novelli's cookery school.
