Chef Olivia Burt embarked on her culinary career at the age of 18 with 3 months at the prestigious BallyMaloe Cookery School in Cork, Ireland, before continuing her training at London and Paris’s Le Cordon Bleu.

Originally from Worcestershire, Olivia completed her culinary studies in Paris and took a job at L’Atelier Joel Robuchon** on the Champ Elysees in Paris, where she worked for a year before becoming a private chef. Olivia then returned back to London which led her to the kitchen of Claridge’s in Mayfair, starting out as part of the team for Simon Rogan’s Fera*  for 3 years before remaining at the hotel as sous chef. Having competed in the Roux Scholarship as a finalist for 2 years running and also a finalist for MasterChef the Professionals 2019. Olivia is now Head Chef at Stanley’s Chelsea.

When not cheffing, Olivia is usually eating! Sampling the different restaurants in London and around the world to learn about the food industry, trends and types of cuisine. She also enjoys food photography and loves to get involved in the ever growing food side of social media. When in Herefordshire, it's all about relaxing with the family, taking time away from the hectic industry and baking with her sisters.
