Skye Gyngell: the chef on how she eats and entertains at home

Listen on

Episode notes

Skye Gyngell is an Australian-born chef who has spent much of her career shaping the British food scene. I first became aware of her cooking when I visited Petersham Nurseries’ cafe in Richmond, which she opened in 2004 and later earned it a Michelin star. Nowadays she runs her own beautiful restaurant, Spring, at Somerset House in London, and is the culinary director of Hampshire hotel Heckfield Place. For this episode, Skye generously invited us into her home in west London and we talked about all sorts of things, including her favourite things to eat here and what it’s like being a mother to grown-up kids. 

This conversation was recorded in person at Skye's home in West London.
