Top chef Sophie Michell has left her role at Pont St at Belgraves after three years and launched her own high-end catering company, Sophie Michell Events.
With more than 21 years experience in the culinary industry, Michell’s new venture will focus on providing a bespoke food service for a wide range of events, including corporate, media, celebrations and private functions.
Michell is the youngest female executive chef in the country, and as well as her previous role with Belgraves, she is part of the all female team behind The Gorgeous Kitchen at Heathrow Airport.
She’s also worked at some top restaurants around the world as well as privately for clients such as Claudia Schiffer and Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio. In addition, Michell has starred in Channel 4 show Cook Yourself Thin and this year will release her seventh cookbook, Chef on a Diet.
Sophie Michell says: “I love organising and catering for events. It gives you a one off opportunity to make an amazing experience for the client and I love working one on one to build a truly bespoke package. After many years of being asked to do events I have finally decided to focus on it and the feedback has been amazing so far. It’s an exciting time for myself and my team and we are looking forward to the upcoming summer.”
