Kitchens aren’t just about the food but the people. Here is Matty aka pasta master @mateo.zielonka . I didn’t just leave a kitchen behind in 2015, I left a family. We shared knowledge, culture, stress, tiredness, laughter, and our lives, for years. It’s been incredible following the careers of @vaccaluca80 @gabrielak.s s @david_insta_ar insta_ar @mateo.zielonka @lukeycritter @chefchacha1
Today, I’m back @frenchhousesoho celebrating Bastille day and the 30 years that Lesley Lewis has dedicated to this institution with Fergus, Margot, @spitz69 @russell_norman @angelacooking. In an industry that is far too often concept led, I take great comfort in coming back to a place where food is cooked from the heart @fergushenderson and Margot now @nlborthwick . Being a chef at The French House was the reason I moved to Soho where my career began and where I found love. I’m forever greatful for the team’s hard work and friendship.

Two arched windows frame the three women as they prepare ingredients pulled from the garden. Glossy black aubergines, courgettes still slightly prickly and pungent mint stems sit on the counter top.
The low tables nearby are shielded from the hot midday sun by a three-hundred-year-old pistachio.
