Adam Handling appoints first ever head chef for his flagship restaurant, Frog by Adam Handling

Adam Handling has announced Cleverson Cordeiro as the first ever Head Chef for his flagship restaurant in Covent Garden, Frog by Adam Handling.

Prior to Cordeiro’s appointment, the kitchen at Frog by Adam Handling was overseen by Steven Kerr, Executive Head Chef for the entire Adam Handling Group. This exciting appointment thus marks the first time Frog by Adam Handling will have a dedicated Head Chef who is solely dedicated to developing and maintaining the exceptional menus and kitchens at Adam’s critically-acclaimed restaurant.

Cleverson Cordeiro

Brazilian-born, Cordeiro moved to England in 2006 and has since spent 13 years in the hospitality industry working in some of London’s hottest fine-dining establishments. Most notably, before joining Frog by Adam Handling in 2017, Cordeiro spent seven years training at Maze, during which time he worked under a number of renowned chefs including Gordon Ramsay, James Petrie, Jason Atherton, and Anna Haugh.

Having joined the Adam Handling Group as Senior Sous Chef, Cordeiro has proven himself to be an invaluable asset to the team, demonstrating creative flair and a shared passion in the group’s zero-waste ethos. Speaking about his new appointment, Cordeiro says, “I can’t wait to take on this new position, it’s a brilliant opportunity to carry on pushing my creativity and I’m looking forward to managing and mentoring the excellent kitchen team we have here at Frog by Adam Handling.”

Says Adam Handling, “Cleverson has been part of the Adam Handling Group for nearly two years now. He was part of the starting kitchen team when Frog by Adam Handling first opened in 2017 and has been an irreplaceable part of it since! I’m so pleased to announce him as my first ever Head Chef for the restaurant and I have no doubt that he’s going to excel in this new role.”
