Second Floor Chef
Louise McCrimmon trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine where she learnt the classic techniques that are the back bone of her cooking today. After cooking her way around Burgundy in France she settled in Yorkshire where she joined Harvey Nichols as Chef de Partie, working her way up through the ranks in the Fourth Floor Restaurant, Leeds – our first store outside of London.
Since then, Louise has been given her own kitchen to run, becoming Head Chef of theSecond Floor Restaurant at our Bristol store in 2008, where she has really stamped her identity. Louise’s cooking is known for its lightness of touch and well defined flavours. Her food has real character combined with a commitment to seasonality and well sourced raw ingredients.
