Multi-award-winning chef Chantelle is the former chef-owner of Tredwells (the recipient of a green Michelin star in 2021) and All’s Well, a ‘pandemic pop-up’. Her new venture, Apricity, opened in Mayfair in April 2022. As one of the leading female voices in the UK’s hospitality industry, Chantelle is an advocate for seasonality and sustainability, championing veg-forward cooking and committed to creating a more sustainable future across her operation and activities. She's also an independent board member for ReLondon, a Food Council member for City Harvest and author of Planted. More about Chantelle
Former Head Chef of Tredwells, Eve, completed her degree in Cinema and Philosophy in Sorbonne, Paris, spending time in London before moving here after graduating. She quickly moved through various hospitality roles after starting as a bartender in London in 2004 and crossed over into a kitchen role as Commis Chef at Sheraton Park Lane. This is where her passion for cooking shone through.
Fast forward through a decade of hard work, long hours and a great deal of learning, she’s reached a point in her career where she's able to utilise her knowledge and experience to work towards a sustainable and zero waste style of cooking.
Beth graduated from Imperial College London with a Physics degree, however, working at a desk after graduating wasn’t quite the right fit for her. After a gap year cooking from a food truck in Melbourne, she began her career with Chantelle in the kitchen at Tredwells in 2015. She worked her way up from commis chef to General Manager via the reception, marketing and floor teams. As general manager, she choreographed the opening of the pandemic pop-up, All's Well, in Hackney in October 2020 and was recognised as one of the next generation of leaders in The Caterer’s 30 Under 30 Acorn Awards.
She also has an MBA specialising in leadership, management, strategy and entrepreneurship and is currently studying for her WSET Diploma in wine. Using this knowledge, she has developed the wine and beverage program at Apricity.
