As part of our Seasoned Pros campaign we caught up with head chef of Bubala London Helen Graham to find out when she knew she wanted to be a chef, Selling Sunset and where she’ll be going to eat as soon as we are able to!
When did you know you wanted to be a chef?
At University when me and my friends would play Come Dine With Me – I got so into it, I forgot to hand in an essay! I was hooked.
Top 3 things you can’t be without in the kitchen?
Maldon, Sumac, Lemons.
Your go to comfort dinner and dessert?
Parmigiana & a tiramisu!
Your favourite lockdown watch – series/film?
Selling Sunset – I’m not ashamed.
Where are you going to eat as soon as we are able to?
I’ve no idea, I feel so overwhelmed by the choice! Probably Smoking Goat or Koya.
What’s your favourite recipe book?
Every Grain of Rice by Fushia Dunlop – it really helped me to understand a whole new cuisine and open my eyes to a different way of cooking and seasoning.
What’s a job you did before you were a chef?
I used to work at a fancy chocolate shop on the counter – it was torture!
