With Pie Master Calum Franklin.

Famed for his intricate pastry designs and innovative fillings, Chef Calum Franklin has revived the art of the pie in the UK.

Calum Franklin began his career at Michelin-star restaurant Chapter One in Kent, where he developed his culinary knowledge and skills before later moving on to roles at The Ivy, Aurora at the Andaz Hotel, Indigo at One Aldwych Hotel and Roast in Borough Market. Currently Executive Head Chef at Rosewood London’s Holborn Dining Room, he is renowned for taking old-school pastry classics and updating them with quality British ingredients. Passionate about craftsmanship, which is demonstrated through his intricate and elaborate pastry work, he is perhaps best known for having spearheaded the development and launch of the restaurant’s ‘Pie Room’, a treasure trove of savoury delicacies for food lovers.
