Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Andrew Clarke

Where: Castle Outer Bailey


FIRE KITCHEN STAGE - with DJ BBQ as compere

Andrew is always keen to challenge perceptions and although he has the look and reputation for cooking with meat and BBQ he became known for creating daintier dishes championing vegetables at Brunswick House where he was Chef Director for several years. Andrew is now Chef Director of London restaurant St Leonards which opened in 2018 with great anticipation and support from the London restaurant critics. His menu has a fire and ice theme with an ice bar for raw fish, and open-hearth fire and spit for cooking meat and vegetables.

In 2019, Andrew was honoured to receive the Innovation Award at the Craft Guild of Chef's Awards. He was particularly humbled as it was the only award of the night which was voted for at the event by other attending professional chefs that Andrew greatly admires. 

Andrew is also the founder of Pilot Light, an incredible campaign he created to support people in the catering industry struggling with mental health issues. He is a prominent face at Meatopia and curates Glandstonbury – London’s annual offal festival. He is also currently writing his first book but continues to play guitar in a metal band whenever the opportunity arises.

Andrew will be bringing a passion for outdoor cooking along to Ludlow and we're looking forward to welcoming him to the Fire Kitchen Stage, sponsored by Kadai Firebowls.
