      From July to December, L’atelier des Chefs dives in the sea with white halibut and cod from Norway. L'atelier des Chefs has a special partner for this adventure: NORGE which pormotes Norwegian fish.

      L'atelier des Chefs thinks that Norwegian fish have a very high quality and are worth it. That is why our chefs have imagined daring mixtures with white halibut and cod to create surprising but delicious salted recipes. Cook halibut and cod as you would never have dared to do it thanks to the special classes which will take place at L’atelier des Chefs!

      Come to cook Ceviche of cod with coriander and red onions , Smoked halibut papardelle, garnished with cherry tomatoes and sage, Gorgonzola and smoked halibut souffle, Cod raviolli with Espelette pepper, sour cream scented with herbs, Vanilla infused fillet of cod and ‘maxim’ potatoes ...

      Thanks to this partnership with NORGE you will pay only the half price of the class: £18 instead of £36 for a one hour class!!

      What is Taste of London? Imagine a picnic in a park. Now multiply it by thousands of people. Invite all the best restaurants in the area to contribute the food, and discerning vintners to bring the bottles. Make sure some of the guests are famous chefs happy to help out with cooking hints, and then organise live music to eat and drink by. Ladies and Gentlemen … this is Taste of London.

      Here we are, London! Jérôme and Sev, well known faces to our regular Parisian customers, are now in the heart of the amazing English capital as the faces of L’atelier des Chefs’s first UK branch. After tearful goodbyes, our proud representatives have crossed the Channel to work hard for the opening of a beautiful atelier ready to welcome you from 4th July.

      Want to know more about these two funny guys who left us in France for a thrilling adventure?

      * Educations?

      Jérôme: After HEC (French Business school), I worked in a small company for a year. I met, at the club of the former students, Nicolas Bergerault who was establishing L’atelier des Chefs. It happened in December 2004 and I became the first employee on the 3rd of January 2005.

      Sev: Between 2002 and 2005, I followed a management formation in hotel trade and restoration at Paul Bocuse institute in Lyon. I joined the team in February 2006 and became the 10th employee.

      * Why do you want to work at L’atelier des Chefs?

      Jérôme: I love the spirit of L’atelier des Chefs. Anything is possible. It is a company in which everybody is active all the time, and we listen the costumer. Moreover, the Kitchen is an amazing and a sympathetic place…thank you Chefs!!

      Sev: I had heard about L’atelier des Chefs in my previous job. I immediately loved the concept and jumped at the opportunity.

      * As the intermediary between the Chefs and the customers, do you have anything you’d like to say about either of them?

      Jérôme: I have so much admiration for the chefs: they combine sympathy, passion and creativity. They showed me I was able to cook (yeay!). Today, they are the heart of L’atelier des Chefs because they show that cooking can be accessible and fun at the same time. L’atelier des Chefs’ costumers are people like us, in the same age bracket: mostly 25/45 year olds. Thanks to the kitchen, which is a place where people from different walks of life come together, it’s really easy to speak to either a 20 year old or someone who’s retired. Every day we meet highly passionate and fascinating people. It is really enriching!

      Sev: As a manager I have a strong rapport with our chefs. We are in permanent contact. There is no conflict between chefs and other people as it is sometimes seen in more traditional restoration mediums. Chefs have so much to teach us. As far as our costumers are concerned, they come to L’atelier des Chefs to have fun, for their own pleasure. I have been there for two years and I have seen evolving faithful pupils who keep us informed on their culinary development and their private life. Strong bonds can grow thanks to the user-friendliness permitted by L’atelier des Chefs.

      * Are you a cooker or an eater?

      Jérôme: Both!! I have learned to enjoy cooking at L’atelier des Chefs. I adore eating what I have cooked and I love it when people can taste what I have prepared. Since working at L’atelier des Chefs, I have learned to try my very best because my friends put a big pressure on me when I receive them.

      Sev: A big eater: I benefit from the talents of the chefs.

      * Savoury or sweet?

      Jérôme: Salty! Generally I like sweet and sour dishes but I am crazy about pork, and I eat as much of it in whichever form I can…Actually, I really wasn’t keen on desserts before meeting Jean-Sebastien, who had promised to me he would teach me to love them…

      Sev: Salty. I eat a chorizo-parmesan sandwich every day at 11 am

      * What’s the most bizarre request you’ve had at L’atelier des Chefs?

      Jérôme: A ‘Cook, Eat & Run’ pupil once asked me by email to forward a love letter to a charming young lady he had met during a class. He had had a true love at first sight! After an inquiry to know if she was single and if she would agree to receive this letter, I sent it to her. I never found out what happened next…

      Sev: Someone asked me if he could hire the entire Atelier des Chefs in Penthièvre, the sourrounding streets and the flats above it for a proposal. This is love…

      * Do you have projects for L’atelier des Chefs?

      Jérôme: LONDON!! L’atelier des Chefs opens soon in London and I’m proud to be part of this amazing adventure! English people are crazy about cooking, especially French cooking. Our atelier will be close to Oxford Circus and English people would be able to discover our “Cook, eat & run” at lunch-time from the 4th of July. We will have 2 kitchens on 2 floors which will satisfy every request: we will be able to welcome the general public and businessmen at the same time. Don’t forget that there are 300 000 French people in London and 20 Million Londoners!

      Sev: Opening L’atelier des Chefs in London of course and developing our concept in the whole United Kingdom. England, here we are!

      Here we are! L’atelier des Chefs UK is opening very soon – on 4th of July - in the heart of London!

      Over time we’re looking forward to introducing you to our team and to the area that the UK’s first L’atelier des Chefs will be in. Let’s start with location… Our manager Jérôme has been spending time in London digging out must-know names and addresses nearby.

      • The Wallace Collection (an 18th centry art collection)
      • Madame Tussaud’s
      • Selfridges
      • Paul Smith
      • Regent's Park
      • St Christopher Place
      • St Georges hotel

      How to get to L'atelier des Chefs?

      From Paris, take the Eurostar, then the London tube, get out at Bond Street or Oxford Circus Station (Central and Jubilee Lines). At 19 Wigmore Street, you will be able to discover the biggest atelier! L’atelier des Chefs’ UK debut is 400m² over two floors. Like the other ateliers, this one is composed of 3 spaces: the kitchen (the central element), the dining room and the shop - where you can find essential L’atelier des Chefs kitchenware. L’atelier des Chefs UK has a quirk – there are two kitchens, each on a different level. The first one is sheltered by a 5 meters high picture window. The second one, on the basement, is surrounded by the shop and bar.

      Now, let’s talk about the team that will welcome you at L’atelier des Chefs UK.

      Behind the oven is our man Baldwin who comes from Holland and has worked everywhere all around the world… Jérôme and Sev, our two expatriate representative are already on the spot. Capucine is on a marketing internship until the end of the year and will help the team for the launch. Buzzing in from Lyon, Romain will join the team in few days and will be in charge of the every day business in this atelier, as well as the commercial element. Sophie will join the team in September as a manager.

      We’re really looking forward to welcoming you on 4th July at L’atelier des Chefs UK, 19, Wigmore Street, London, W1U1PH, United Kingdom

      See you soon to learn, eat and enjoy!!
