"Having grown up in a north London butchers. shop and spending mornings at Smithfield Market, it.s fair to say that Hus knows a thing or two about quality meat. Combine this knowledge with a real passion for cooking with interesting cuts of meat, rare breeds and reigniting the smoking elements, and you get dishes that push boundaries and take flavours to whole new levels.

Bringing influences from different cultures around the world to the table, Hus. goal is always to produce new, exciting and innovative dishes that maintain simplicity with a real focus on provenance and fresh produce."
