Following on from our 10th anniversary celebrations last year, the Boglione family, owners and creators of Petersham Nurseries, have recently secured the talents of a new head chef, Damian Clisby, previously head chef at HIX Soho and Cotswold House.
Damian works alongside Culinary Director, Lucy Boyd, gardener, food writer and cook, who has worked at the Nurseries for most of the last decade. Lucy's exceptional produce knowledge, culinary background and lifelong affection for Italian flavours, combine perfectly with Damian's technical skills and shared passion for ingredient-led cooking. Together they create an evolving menu inspired by what is growing in the garden, the changing seasons, and our connection to the environment.
PETERSHAM & SLOW FOOD: Our sourcing ethos inspires our chefs who are respectful of the produce they work with and appreciate its exceptional quality and taste. In turn the small farmers and artisan producers who grow or produce these ingredients benefit from our support – a virtuous circle best espoused by the international Slow Food movement.
