The return of Chef Bruno Loubet, to the Zetter Hotel in London’s Clerkenwell has been the most eagerly-anticipated opening of the year. The ‘most exciting comeback since Jesus on the Road to Emmaus’ said Giles Coren. Loubet’s stellar career took him from Head Chef at the Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons and Le Petit Blanc, to winning Times ‘Restaurant of the Year’ with both Bistrot Bruno and L’Odeon. Then he left for Australia. Now he is back – and here in Abergavenny he’ll be giving a masterclass on French Bistro cooking.
