It was meals at St. John and The Fat Duck that made James want to start cooking. He had to get in the kitchen and find out how it all worked, and after reading Hotel Bemelmans and Kitchen Confidential, he was convinced it would be a good idea to be a chef! After working at some of the UK’s top restaurants, and eating and cooking in some of the best across Europe and the US as well, he is now looking for his own site in London while organising legendary supper clubs. James is eager to push British food in a new direction, promoting local products, and helping British food get taken seriously at an international level.
