As a keen young chef, Fynn Hughes is trained in fine dining, having worked in some of London’s top kitchens from the age of 16. After a knee injury, Fynn found it difficult to work the hours that restaurant kitchens demanded. However, his talent did not go unrecognised and he received a scholarship to train at The French Culinary Institute, New York, where he later graduated and had his name added to the Deans List of Excellence. Fynn then went on to work at 2 Michelin starred ‘Aquavit’; the demanding environment quickly taught him valuable skills in precision and perfectionism that are synonymous with Michelin starred restaurants. In London, Fynn worked as head chef at a café and ran a fortnightly supper club, creating menus which boasted seasonal and local produce. Today, Fynn uses all of his skills to deliver delicious menus to his clients as a private chef in London.
