Hailing from Nottingham, Tom Sellers is a two Michelin-starred Chef who opened his first restaurant, Restaurant Story, at 26. At launch, Tom’s unique approach garnered significant critical acclaim, and the ten-table Bermondsey restaurant was awarded a Michelin Star just five months after opening, with a second following in 2021.
Restaurant Story is known for Tom’s signature dishes, including ‘Bread and dripping’, an edible candle made from beef tallow that melts to be eaten with bread, and Tom’s unique ability to break convention and merge fine dining with forward thinking.
Tom learned his craft from some of the world’s most influential Chefs, and spent time working alongside the likes of Tom Aikens in London, Thomas Keller at three Michelin-starred Per Se in New York, and René Redzepi at two Michelin-starred Noma in Copenhagen, all before the age of 21.
Tom has a number of close brand partners and affiliates who he works with throughout the year. These include various projects, from special events and private dinners to brand consultancy and think tanks. Tom is currently the official UK Chef Ambassador for Rolls Royce, Bang & Olufsen and Audemars Piguet.
