Culinary Congress 2018 - Introducing Tom Aikens, Guest Chef

Renowned British Chef Tom Aikens will be sharing his thoughts and ideas on the forever trend that is Modern British Cuisine as well as ethos behind Tom's Kitchen at the Culinary Congress London this June.

Tom is one of the UK's most acclaimed and inspirational British chefs. His career has taken him to Pierre Koffman's La Tante Claire, Pied-à-Terre and Joel Robuchon in Paris to name a few. At 26, Tom became the youngest British chef to be awarded two Michelin stars.

Tom discovered French gastronomy and the central importance of food in his life through his father and grandfather who forged their path in the wine industry. Having spent time at some of Britain's best restaurants, working with some of the industry's top names, Tom eventually opened his own, eponymous restaurant in Chelsea; "Tom Aikens Restaurant" in 2003. Aikens' second restaurant, the brasserie-style "Tom's Kitchen", followed in 2006. Since then, other venues and ventures have followed, including three books; Cooking (2006), Fish (2008), and Easy (2011), and a collaboration with designer David Linley on a range of kitchenware.

Tom Aikens is one of the many great speakers and names that will be running demonstrations at our Culinary Congress 2018, running over 5th and 6th June at Hawker House, Canada Street, London. The congress is a two-day exploration of trendsetting cuisines and culinary innovation, brought to life by the world's best chefs, mixologists and innovators with a trend narrative from thefoodpeople – a first for the UK.
