One to Watch

The  Staff Canteen

executive chef at Roganic and Aulis London and Hong Kong Oli Marlow was named One to Watch in the TSC Awards 2021.

Oli knew he wanted to be chef from a young age. He did an apprenticeship at the Chewton Glen in Hampshire whilst studying at college, then staged at The Fat Duck and Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons before landing a job at Quay in Sydney with chef Peter Gilmour.

His career has so far been staggering: whilst still in his early twenties, the chef left a position at Roganic to work at Eleven Madison Park in New York, then landed a sous-chef position at Maaemo in Oslo, returning to work for Jonny Lake at The Fat Duck before being named head chef at Roganic.

In 2021, Oli not only secured a spot in the Great British Menu 2021 national finals but beat the record for the highest score across four courses: he received 38 points from veteran judge Paul Ainsworth and 38 from the sum of points awarded by Matthew Fort, Oliver Peyton, Rachel Khoo and guest judge Professor Chris Jackson.
