James Knappett


In this episode Justine interviews Chef James Knappett as he shares about his incredibly inspiring journey, working with some of the world’s best chefs.

James Knappett is chef patron and co-founder of Kitchen Table. Born in Soham, Cambridgeshire, James had an early interest in cooking and attended a Cambridgeshire catering college before moving to London and landing formative positions at the likes of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, The Berkeley and The Ledbury. Following a number of fulfilling years in the hospitality industry in the city, he relocated to Rick Stein’s The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow for three years. In 2005 he ventured further afield to world-renowned restaurant, Thomas Keller’s Per Se in New York and then to the renowned Noma in Copenhagen. 

James and his wife, Sandia Chang, opened Kitchen Table in September 2012, which was awarded a Michelin star in 2014, followed by a coveted second Michelin star in 2018. Since opening 8 years ago, the restaurant has been celebrated for offering a dining experience that encourages full interaction with the chefs and showcases remarkable acts of kitchen theatre.
