The Chef’s Directory – “Indispensable & Life-changing” says Michel Roux OBE
Sixteen years of research. 480 pages. Never-seen-before lists. It all adds up to an incredible new look at what it takes to be a top professional chef.
Editor and creator Chandos Elletson is a former chef, food writer (The Times) and chef filmmaker. He was one of the original founders of Restaurant Magazine.
The Chef’s Directory listings are incredibly detailed and offer unique insights into careers and further education. Every listing contains, where available, twitter and facebook addresses alongside key contact details and, in the case of restaurants and kitchens: valuable career details. This level of insight has never been seen before in one volume.
The Chef’s Directory sections have been broken down to make it easy to research key areas of the profession. If you’re looking for ingredients or equipment then our dedicated sections make it very easy to discover who the key players are. In certain cases suppliers and artisans offer courses to further your education and you’ll find details with every listing.
The Chef’s Directory covers every aspect of the chef profession with detailed listings. You’ll find sections on:
- Working as a chef
