There was a time, not too long ago, that chefs didn’t have a connection to their suppliers. And it’s still true for many restaurants. But the relationship between supplier and chef is growing. Farmers and butchers are getting their recognition. And why wouldn’t they? They are the source and the beginning of what goes into a great meal.
A group of young, but well established chefs are taking this relationship to the next level. They are the future of British cuisine and they call themselves The Young Turks. Comprised of three chefs with experience in the world’s best kitchens including, Noma, St John, and the Ledbury. James Lowe, Isaac McHale and Ben Greeno have been working together since 2010, setting up shop in temporary spaces that will give them the freedom to do exactly as they wish. They focus on strong relationships with small producers, transparency into their cooking, and the importance of eating your greens.
For the fortunate ones living and visiting London in the next month, The Young Turks will be taking over The Ten Bells in Shoreditch for three months. The temporary restaurant will be open starting tomorrow. Visit their site for more information and reservations. Read More
