Executive Head Chef

Erion Karaj

In 1999 Erion moved from Albania to London, where he worked in several top French and Italian restaurants.

In early 2007 he joined Gordon Ramsay at Boxwood Café, moving quickly up the ranks to Senior Sous Chef.

He then worked at both Plane Food and the Savoy Grill before being appointed Head Chef at Bread Street Kitchen, which opened in September 2011.

Head Chef

Paul Shearing

Paul has a wealth of experience gleaned from some of the capital’s best restaurants. Prior to joining Gordon Ramsay Group, he was Head Chef at Village East, a restaurant heralded as bringing the food-scene to Bermondsey. Other positions include Head Chef at boutique property One Aldwych and Senior Sous Chef at Bibendum.

Comprising a restaurant and bar with 220 covers, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Bread Street Kitchen is a challenge for any chef. However Paul is confident that by drawing on his wealth of knowledge gained in his previous roles, he will continue to see that Bread Street Kitchen rises from height to height.

General Manager

Mat Horvath

From Kitchen Porter to Head Chef to General Manager, Mat Horvath knows restaurants inside out. As Bread Street Kitchen’s General Manager, Mat brings his diverse experience from Drake & Morgan, Carluccio’s and Canteen to the table. Deciding he preferred the management functions of the restaurant rather than the kitchen, Mat studied a HND in Hospitality Business Management from Leeds Metropolitan University before joining Carluccio’s as an Assistant Manager.

In 2014, Gordon Ramsay Group offered Mat the role of General Manager at Bread Street Kitchen, a challenging central London role for any manager, Mat has previously proven his expertise and will continue to help the restaurant go from strength to strength.
