Episode 10: Isaac McHale from The Clove Club in London

Isaac McHale is the chef at The Clove Club in London and one of the most successful British chefs of our time. Born in Orkney and growing up in Glasgow, Scotland, McHale started working at the local fishmonger at the age of 14. After working in Sydney and Copenhagen he returned to London to work with legendary chefs Tom Aikens and Brett Graham. After a few years in the experimental Young Turks chefs collective, he opened his own restaurant, The Clove club in Shoreditch town hall, in 2013.

We meet Isaac McHale at his restaurant, and hear the story of his way from Northern Scotland to the best restaurant kitchens in the world, and how he became one of the chefs that redefined British cuisine.

Isaac McHale will tell us about his journey to the top of the restaurant world and at the end of our talk he will reveal his favourite restaurant recommendations in London and out in the world.
