Growing up in different countries can form a strong and deeply determined person, which in the hospitality business is a rare gem.
After college he was  ambitious and hungry for knowledge and got to work with some of the best professionals in the business with mentors such as Graham Long, Phil Howard, Josh Angus and especially Brett Graham, where, at The Ledbury, I strongly believe he developed the mental strength to go past the limit whatever it takes.

Out of all the chefs I've ever worked with I've never met someone else who pushes as hard as he does: rules are only there to be broken and limits are only a mental status.
Every person he works with looks up to him and his philosophy, tough but caring at the same time, he's inspired and a great leader and lives by the rule of working hard and playing even harder.

Introduced to the hospitality industry at a young age, Eva quickly showed a unique interest and a particular gift to the art of cocktail making. She is tremendously talented, passionate, the one that keeps all of us under control and pushes the team in creating better and more unique dishes. 
For these reasons she became the driving and irreplaceable force of our team.

He's the business man of the group, came to London for his MBA 10 years ago after studying tourism and hotel management in Turkey for what was meant to be a few months to gain some experience, ended up falling in love with the city and the industry and never left.

The man loves a good challenge, is always ready to start from scratch, embarking on a new adventure; his work ethic and love for people are a true inspiration. He's a wonderful leader and that friend you can always rely on.

A chef by heart and soul, one of the most hard working and sarcastic people you’ll ever meet . He will always be able to put a smile on your face, a great teacher and mentor to all other chefs who are willing to learn and push. He is the person in the kitchen who will make it happen no matter what.
