Sophie Michell’s first cooking experiences started with her grandmother at the young age of 4. By the time she was 15, she had already entered the food industry by servicing in a gastropub in Somerset. Soon, she went on training at London’s prestigious Butler’s Wharf Chef School while working at high-end restaurants such as La Gavroche and Michelin-starred Greenhouse. At 19, Michell was nominated ‘Young Chef of the Year’ by the renowned Craft Guild of Chefs.
Michell’s cuisine combines eclectic influences, high-quality ingredients and a strong focus on nutritional virtue. She has been the private chef for a number of celebrity clients such as Claudia Schiffer or Leonardo DiCaprio. More recently, Michell became the executive chef for The Royal Polo for Prince Harry and Prince William, at Lord Lloyd Webber’s estate. But possibly her major challenge was to become UK’s youngest female Executive Chef at Belgraves Hotel in London, receiving a superb response from critics and fans.
Additionally, Michell has joined the crew behind The Gorgeous Kitchen, a new restaurant at Heathrow’s Terminal 2 aimed at providing passengers with a menu at the level of the top London’s restaurants.
Sophie is also a successful TV presenter. She took part in Channel 4’s ‘Cook Yourself Thin’ and also in ‘Sky Taste’, ‘Iron Chef’ USA and ‘Masterchef’, among others. As a writer, she has contributed to various publications including Grazia, Healthy Magazine, The Telegraph, The Times and Stella, to cite just a few. Moreover, Michell has worked for many well-known brands as a consultant and ambassador, including Danone, Haagen Dazs, Ocado or Total Yoghurt. As an author, Sophie has published ‘Irresistible’ (2005), ‘Fabulous Food’ (2008) and ‘Love Good Food’ (2012), and has co-written the ‘Cook Yourself Thin’ book (2007) for the Channel 4’s TV show. Her most recent publications are ‘The Gorgeous Kitchen’ (2014) and a book in collaboration with Total Greek Yoghurt.
Michell was a specialist judge in the well-known Smith Hotel Awards and also the Young National Chef of the Year Awards. In 2014, she was invited by the Sunday Times to join a talk with fashion designer Emilia Wickstead at the Cheltenham Literature Festival.
