Chefs at home - what London's chefs are cooking for themselves during lockdown

Over the many long weeks we've been in lockdown (wait - is that still actually on?) we've really enjoyed bringing you our weekly roundup of what London's chefs have been making for themselves at home.


Ben Murphy - Launceston Place

We've seen a lot of lovely pastry work going on during lockdown and Head Chef Ben's Tarte Tatin is no exception. Happily he also provides the recipe for you to have a go too. 


Denai Moore - Dee's Table

Supperclub host Denai is known for her modern vegan take on Jamaican food and we badly want to try making this plaintain custard and passion fruit pastry this weekend. 


Natalie Tangsakul - Talad Eatery

Natalie Tangsakul was supposed to have opened this Thai cafe in Chelsea during lockdown. Instead she's getting ready to open the space as a deli. Meanwhile, her Sunday family spread gives us a hint of what we can expect when it opens fully.

Cosimo Castronuovo - Top Cuvee

Cosimo's the man making the pasta at Highbury spot Top Cuvee. But when he's off-duty, he's a dab hand at the BBQ as this epic steak shot shows. Now we want a socially-distant invitation...


Yee Li - Dumpling Shack

Oh so casually, Yee says she's knocked up a batch of what sound like the most heavenly rolls on earth. Where can we buy these is what we'd like to know.
