How to work your way up the foodchain

Robin Hutson, Kurt Zdesar & Rupert Clevely, Hospitality industry experts

Today’s episode is all about working your way up the foodchain — almost literally, in fact. In a special edition of the show, we speak to three men who have started at the bottom of the hospitality industry and worked their way to the very top: Robin Hutson, the father of the ’boutique hotel’; Kurt Zdesar, who brought Nobu to London; and Rupert Clevely, founder of Geronimo Inns.

Our thanks to Mark’s Club, Mayfair, for playing hosts.

This episode has been recorded at Mark's Club, read by Joseph Bullmore and produced by Martin Lumsden.
