Hello, hello, hello. On the Yes Chef podcast this week we have North Londoner and chef Ben Murphy, who originally dreamed of becoming a footballer but an injury whilst trialling for Queens Park Rangers led to an unexpected career change into food.
Turns out he’s pretty damn good in the kitchen. After a stint at Koffmann’s at The Berkeley in Knightsbridge, then Michel Guérard’s three-star restaurant Les Prés d’Eugénie in south-west France, and then to Épicure at Le Bristol in Paris, Ben became Head Chef at Launceston Place in Kensington where he is smashing it. Lovely guy.
