Julian Marshall
Head Chef, Bleeding Heart

Chef julian

Julian Marshall has 25 years under his toque as a chef including 7 years with Anton Mosimann and 8 years as chef of The Lanesborough .

His first experience of working in a kitchen was under Anton Edelmann at the Savoy in London, where he spent two years working throughout all the sections before moving to Cheshire; but he was back in London within a couple of years determined to gain Michelin restaurant experience. First with Marco Pierre White at his acclaimed Harvey’s Restaurant before joining Gary Hollihead’s team at the two starred Sutherland’s Restaurant.

Julian returned to the bustle of the grand hotel kitchens when he joined Paul Gayler’s brigade at the Lanesborough on Hyde Park Corner, where he spent seven years, the last four as Executive Sous Chef. During that time he had the opportunity to work alongside many of the leading international chefs as they visited the hotel to participate in high profile culinary exchanges.

Julian joined Anton Mosimann’s famed Belgravia dining club in July 2000 as Head Chef. He shares Anton Mosimann’s passion for food, simply and honestly prepared.

Two years ago he moved to one of the city of London’s most venerable and historic establishments, the 30 year-old Bleeding Heart with its fine-dining restaurants, its French Bistro and Terrace and its Angl-Saxon Tavern. He now runs a team of 28 chefs in four separate kitchens, a daunting task for anyone, especially in December when they handle almost 1,000 customers a day.
