CHEF JULIEN (NORTH LONDON)

French born Chef Julien Duruel discovered his passion for all things culinary by experimenting and creating delicious dishes in his parent’s kitchen from an early age using the freshest ingredients from the streets of Paris.

After 4 years of intensive training, he graduated from the well renowned school Grégoire-Ferrandi in Paris and worked his way through some of Paris’s most prestige restaurants such as Antoine and Atelier Maître Albert, here he picked up some beautiful modern French cooking methods with worldly influences.

Julien has spent the last 8 years in London cooking privately for some very high profile clients and running events for a top London catering company. His flair is something that must not be underestimated!
