Ollie commented: “I remember Rene Pinedo from my first restaurant, Dabbous, many years ago: such a lovely bloke, both extremely passionate and humble. I am thrilled to see him now as Head Chef of The Feathered Nest and can’t wait to go to his kitchen to cook my dishes alongside his, all served with some amazing wines from Hedonism.”

Rene said: “Ollie has always been such a big inspiration and I am grateful for the opportunity and knowledge he imparted when I was at Dabbous. I am delighted that my former mentor is now joining me in my own kitchen and can’t wait to serve this collaborative menu.”
