The Brothers Selby Scoop up The Michelin Young Chef Award
Michelin have long been in the trade of highlighting excellence in dining but in a latest move they have put a spotlight on a charming hospitality story. It would have been easy to have given the Young Chef award to Luke Selby who launched Evelyn’s Table last year at the Blue Posts pub in Soho.
Luke, the eldest of three brothers, won the Roux Scholarship in 2017 and did his stage in Japan – the first scholar to do so. He’s an accomplished chef and would have been a valid recipient. However, what is lesser known is that he has been working with his two brothers, Nat and Theo, for the better part of his career – most notably at Le Manoir and then at Hyde.
The trio of chef brothers now work together at Evelyn’s Table and Michelin have rewarded all three with the prize.
“Their infectious enthusiasm for their craft is a joy to witness,” the guide said on announcing the win.
Michelin’s review of Evelyn’s Table says this:
“Hidden beneath the Blue Posts pub, this tiny restaurant has two sittings each evening, counter seats and a subterranean speakeasy vibe. Arrive on time to watch Head Chef Luke Selby and his brothers Nat and Theo as they confidently craft sophisticated dishes using a mix of French and Japanese techniques.”
We congratulate the brothers on what is a brilliant win and for the passion they bring to our industry.
