Alyn Williams (@alyn_williams) is Chef Patron at Alyn Williams at The Westbury. With a passion for food and flavours inspired by childhood, London-born Alyn embarked on his cooking career at the age of 16. After excelling at catering college, which involved a particularly inspiring placement at Claridge?s, he briefly took a job at Champion Sauvage in Cheltenham. He spent several years abroad cheffing and snowboarding in both France the US before returning to London aged 28 and joining Gordon Ramsay Group. He worked for several of the group?s restaurants including Restaurant Gordon Ramsey, Gordan Ramsay at Claridge?s and Petrus. An executive chef opportunity at The Groucho Club took Alyn away from the Michelin world for two and half years. In 2005, he went back to Petrus under the helm of Marcus Wareing. Alyn was made head chef in 2006 and soon after the restaurant received its second Michelin star. In 2011, Alyn opened his first solo venture at Mayfair?s The Westbury Hotel, Alyn Williams at The Westbury.
