We are very excited to be welcoming Merlin Labron from Michelin starred Portland Restaurant to the cookery school this year for a demonstration.

Awarded a Michelin star only nine months after having opened his first restaurant, Merlin Labron-Johnson might be very young –he won the prestigious award as head chef at Portland at only 24 but he knows what he is doing. An accomplished chef trained in France, Switzerland and Belgium.

Smoked Cod’s Roe, Young Onions and Chervil
