Claude Bosi (@claudebosi) grew up in Lyon, where his parents ran a bistro. At age 14 Claude decided to become a chef. He “pre-apprenticed” at a friend’s brasserie, full-time and without pay. That led to an apprenticeship with Jean-Paul Lacombe and later stints with Alain Passard (L’arpege) and Alain Ducasse. He moved to Ludlow, England, to brush up his language skills while working as a sous-chef. With his then-wife, Claire, he finally opened his own restaurant, Hibiscus, and earned two Michelin stars. In 2007 the couple relocated Hibiscus from Ludlow to London, regaining their stars in little time.
Claude’s cuisine is modern and surprising, the flavors of each ingredient dialled up to maximum. Claude and his brother opened hotel -The Townhouse(Ludlow,2014). The Brothers launched their most recent venture – another pub – The Swan, Surrey in late May 2016. A ‘traditional British pub, interpreted by a Frenchman’.
