Claudio Bincoletto

Claudio Bincoletto is an Italian chef, ethno-botanist and expert on wild food who leads Thyme's forages and nature walks.  Claudio first worked as a chef in our restaurant at The Swan, but quickly moved to help establish the kitchen gardens at Thyme where he worked as head gardener for two years. Returning to Writtle College to study agronomy, with a particular interest in biodynamic farming, he graduated with a first class honours degree in horticulture and the environment. These skills are put into practice on a small herb farm which he continues to run with his mother and sister near Venice and in the work that he does for organisations such as Diversity for Life.
