Executive Head Chef
Fluent in three languages, Robert brings a passion for European flavours and exceptional quality from his experience in award-winning kitchens both in London and his home country of Poland.
Robert began his culinary career back in 1992 when he started his classical training working at the oldest French restaurant in London, L’Escargot. Subsequent moves to Soho House and, the then Michelin-starred, Les Saveurs by Marco Pierre White further built on these foundations of traditional techniques and skills, giving Robert the grounding to return to Poland in 1998 as a confident chef.
Leading positions in the restaurants of luxury Haffner and Mazurkas Hotels followed, plus a fantastic opportunity to launch two new kitchens under the restauranter Magda Gessler. Here he picked up valuable experience in leadership and how to handle the pressures of a new restaurant opening.
Coming back to London in 2011, Robert took on the Head Chef position at the highly acclaimed Northall restaurant within the prestigious Corinthia Hotel, where he led the team for five years.
Robert joined Gordon Ramsay Restaurants in 2017 as Head Chef at Heddon Street Kitchen just off Regent’s Street. This set him up perfectly to manage the larger team at Bread Street Kitchen in St. Paul’s as Executive Head Chef, before moving on to oversee the kitchens of both London House in Battersea and York & Albany near Regent's Park.
