Guest Chefs

Our 2019 guest chef programme will feature several globally acclaimed chefs from Michelin star restaurants, notable for both their culinary talent and social impact. This year, we are delighted to welcome chefs from Mexico, Germany, New York, Scotland and beyond. These chefs will be taking over our 4th floor restaurant, delighting members and their guests with special tasting menus reflecting a variety of flavours and ingredients.

Massimo Bottura

Our first guest chef was Massimo Bottura, one of the world’s most creative and socially responsible culinary figures. From 11th to 15th September 2018, he served members and their guests a menu from the acclaimed Osteria Francescana in Modena, named the World’s Best Restaurant. Massimo is committed to addressing the issues of food waste and hunger; together with his non-profit organisation Food for Soul, he founded Refettorio Felix at St Cuthbert’s, the community kitchen that uses surplus ingredients to create meals for those living in socially vulnerable conditions. Part of the proceeds from his residency at The Conduit went to Food for Soul.
