Appearing Sunday 7th

Jean Christophe Novelli

Appearing on Sunday’s stage will be world-renowned Michelin star chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, who will be sharing cooking tips from his long and successful career.

Beginning as a baker at just 14 in Northern France, Jean-Christophe mastered his craft until at the age of 19 he joined a chain of restaurants owned by the Rothschild family. 

Arriving in Great Britain in 1983, he spent a year helping his mentor and friend Keith Floyd as chef-manager of his pub and restaurant.


Then, in 1996, Jean-Christophe opened his first restaurant Maison Novelli in Clerkenwell, London, followed quickly by Novelli W8, Novelli EC1 and Les Saveurs in Mayfair.

He also launched Novelli at the Cellars – Cape Town’s leading five-star Relais et Chateaux Hotel – as well as Moulin de Jean in Normandy and was the chef consultant on Sea France Ferries.
