The Young Turks collective was formed in 2010 by James Lowe, Isaac Mchale and Ben Greeno. Having helped each other out at various events, we realised we shared the same hopes, ideas and beliefs about food and cooking.

Our goal is to create a platform to work together on, doing one off and short lived events, promoting a new approach to British cooking, one that focuses on small producers and building relationships with them, one that brings vegetables to the fore, one that emphasises collaboration and helpfulness over secrecy.

We are young and ambitious, have worked in some of the best kitchens in the world,
and now we want to do things our way.
