Oliver Rowe is a Londoner who first learned to cook in Tuscany. He trained and flourished at the award-winning Moro in Clerkenwell and was Head Chef at Maquis in Hammersmith. After a stint in Paris and the South of France he went on to open his café - called Konstam, after his grandmother - followed by his restaurant, Konstam at the Prince Albert, both in London’s King’s Cross. Oliver featured in BBC2's The Urban Chef, which followed his search for local suppliers to provide high quality, seasonal produce for his restaurant. More recently he has worked in kitchens in the UK and abroad, including Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California.
Since the publication of his highly acclaimed cookbook 'Food for All Seasons' he has brought his simple and honest style of cookery to a wider audience with a Guardian Newspaper Residence and Chef of the Month for Waitrose Magazine to name but two features. He now works on a variety of food projects, residencies, demos, pop-ups and seasonal supper clubs. Oliver is also a food stylist whose work has appeared in many publications including The Observer and The Sunday Times. His events at Thyme are truly inspirational and so much fun!
'His cooking has great integrity, is pleasingly uncomplicated, yet often with a twist.' Samuel Clark, Moro
