Andrew is an award-winning chef in the UK food scene. With over 20 years in hospitality as both chef and restaurateur, he is best known for his previous London restaurants, Brunswick House and St Leonards, and for his mental health campaign, Pilot Light.
Known for using the finest ingredients, Andrew goes above and beyond to source the highest quality local meat, fish & in-season vegetables. His theory is, “If you’re going to eat meat, it should be the best quality meat available.” Andrew is a well-known face at Meatopia and other live fire events, and curates the flavours of Glandstonbury – London’s annual offal festival.
Although Andrew has a reputation as an innovative meat and BBQ chef, he is always keen to challenge perceptions, and has become known for creating refined and elevated dishes that champion vegetables. Andrew is an experienced forager and enjoys using wild produce in his quest to push the boundaries of culinary innovation.
Andrew recently stepped away from the kitchen to concentrate on Pilot Light, a social good business he co-founded with chef Doug Sanham, which aims to tackle the stigma around mental health in hospitality through raising awareness and prevention. However, he still cooks regularly for national and international events, collaborates with sponsors, and enjoys creating the occasional cooking video. Andrew also sings and plays guitar in the metal band Kandahar Giant.
In 2019, Andrew was honoured to receive the Innovation Award from the Craft Guild of Chefs, and later that year he made his way onto the Evening Standard’s Progress 1000 list as one of the most influential Londoners of 2019/20.
