Tom Aikens is one of the UK's most acclaimed and inspirational British chefs.

His remarkable career took him to David Cavalier's in Battersea, Pierre Koffman's La Tante Claire, Joel Robuchon in Paris, Gerard Boyere's in Riems and Pied-à-Terre to name a few. It was at the latter that Tom became the youngest British chef ever to be awarded two Michelin stars, aged just 26.

Tom's Kitchen

Although Toms career started within fine dining, Tom has since diversified to the premium casual market opening Tom's Kitchen in 2006 with critical acclaim. Tom wanted to open his kitchen both physically and metaphorically, making everyone welcome. To share everything that food has taught Tom and the happiness it has brought, this is where the true inspiration for Toms Kitchen has come from, good food for everyone and anyone is at the heart of the concept.
