Born in 1972, Claude Bosi is the son of Italian parents who moved to France to open a restaurant. Claude was raised in Lyon, surrounded by food, where his passion for cooking and working in the kitchen began. Leaving France for England in his early twenties, Claude took up the position of sous chef at Overton Grange, a small restaurant in Ludlow, Shropshire, where he was promoted to head chef within a matter of months. In January 1999 the restaurant received its first Michelin star. In 2000, Claude left Overton Grange to open his own restaurant, named ‘Hibiscus’ after his favourite flower. Nine months after opening, Claude was awarded a Michelin star, and in 2004, he received his second. Satisfied with his cooking style, Claude set his sights on moving to a bigger stage with more possibilities. In 2007, Claude relocated the restaurant to London, before its doors closed in 2016, and in 2017 he moved into South Kensington’s iconic Michelin building, Bibendum.
