He talks about the vibrant UK food scene, some of his favourite restaurants which include Tom Kerridge at The Hand and Flowers and The Kitchen Table with James Knappett, plus food styles that are emerging in the UK right now. Russell has already worked for many of the UK’s leading chefs and through his time in those kitchens has worked with the RATIONAL combi oven, something he sees as second to none and has one in the kitchen at Colette’s, which is in regular use as part of his menu development.
