The Chef

 

Geoffrey Smeddle

Geoffrey Smeddle developed a passion for food during his time as a student at Southampton University. After attaining a degree in history he spent the summer in Sauternes, France, working in the kitchen of a hotel run by his aunt and uncle. This first taste of life as a commis chef renewed his culinary ambitions, and upon returning to the UK he began training at Westminster College.

During his time at catering college he worked at the Oriel Brasserie in Sloane Square, before moving to the Lanesborough Hotel and, later, The Café Royal where he worked under Herbert Berger. Berger proved a formative mentor in classical French cooking, while the luxurious Regent Street surroundings confirmed in Geoffrey Smeddle’s mind that fine dining was the style of cooking he wanted to pursue.
