The boss

Born in Normandy, Guillaume moved to London in 1995. He opened the acclaimed “La Trouvaille” in 2001, one of the first restaurant to offer an organic and biodynamic wine list.

Following the success of La Trouvaille, Guillaume opened Antidote in 2011.
Having had years of experience in the industry and built great relationship with natural wine growers around Europe, he decided Antidote would focus on showcasing the best natural wine growers and offer the perfect wine experience to its customers in a relaxed atmosphere.

When it’s not about food and wine then it’s about music.

Chris began his career in Brittany, France, aged 15, working in a Relais & Chateaux.

He then moved to Paris where he worked during 3 years under Guy Savoy in the French capital and with the Troisgros brothers in Roanne before deciding to cross the English Channel.

Chris started his London career with Chef Pierre Koffmann at La Tante Claire restaurant,  then established himself as a restaurant manager, working with Chef Nico Ladenis, Chef Albert Roux and Brett Graham at the Ledbury.

The chef

From that moment he knew he wanted to be a Chef.
