Tom Brown

Having spoken to plenty of long-established types from the British culinary scene, Simon welcomes some young blood to Grilling this week in the shape of Tom Brown. Born and raised in Redruth, Tom cut his teeth under local luminaries Paul Ripley and Nathan Outlaw in his native Cornwall, before opening his own restaurant, Cornerstone, in Hackney Wick. Named by Harden’s as London’s best seafood restaurant, Cornerstone now has a Michelin star, cementing Tom’s reputation as one of our finest young chefs. Here they talk bang bang chicken, Arctic Monkeys, souped-up Vectras, barbecued lobster, and Tom’s bizarre phobia of baked beans.
