Andre Rhone is to take on his first head chef role overseeing the stoves at Soane's Kitchen within Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery in London's Ealing.

Rhone trained to become a chef nearby having grown up in Ealing, and previously competed in the 2016 Craft Guild of Chefs Graduate Awards.

His CV has seen him previously cook at Purnell’s in Birmingham, and at The Bingham in Richmond where he was sous chef.

Rhone credits Steve Munkley, vice-chairman of the Craft Guild of Chefs, and The Bingham's head chef Andrew Cole with helping to develop his knowledge and understanding of cooking. 

"I cannot believe I’ve landed this wonderful job in the area of London I know like the back of my hand," he says.

"It’s a very proud day for me.” 

Rhone will overhaul the menu at the 70-cover site, which is located inside the original walled kitchen garden at the historic Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, which was built by British architect Sir John Soane between 1800 and 1804.

The chef will focus on sourcing ingredients from local suppliers and using produce from the the Manor's own vegetable and herb plots.

Summer plates set to feature on the menu include chicken with pickled girolles, English broad beans and pearl onions, Dorset rump of lamb with macadamia romesco, fine yellow beans, garden peas and sundried red peppers; and rib-eye steak with Soane's butter, grilled tomato and chips.

Soane’s Kitchen was designed by Jestico + Whiles as part of a recent, multi-million-pound restoration project of Pitzhanger, and was originally led by Social Pantry founder Alex Head when it launched back in 2018.
