“It’s a pretty extreme existence, the life of a chef…”

Ollie Dabbous, Head Chef at HIDE

Ollie Dabbous is the head chef at HIDE, the beautiful, Michelin-starred restaurant overlooking Green Park in London. Having worked his way up through some of the most renowned and intimidating kitchens in the world, Ollie burst onto the scene with his eponymous restaurant Dabbous in 2012 when he was just 31, quickly becoming a truly darling of the London food scene and gaining a reputation as one of its hardest working chefs.
In a highly enjoyable episode of the Gentleman’s Journal Podcast, Ollie tells us about the dish that changed his career forever; what it’s like to be at the mercy of the nation’s restaurant critics; and why Pret a Manger will always hold a very special place in his heart.
