Kenny Rankin is Fifteen's Head Baker with over 20 years experience. He's responsible for providing the flagship restaurant in London with the best standard of Italian-style breads. Alongside his baking expertise, Kenny is responsible for training and mentoring the chef apprentices in the skill of artisan bakery. "Fifteen is great because everything is cooked with integrity – you can always trace where the ingredients are from and that's important to me. Also there's so much you can do with the apprentices, you can teach them the basics but there's also the Swiss and French style bakery that's invaluable learning. Baking is such a dying art and is one of the oldest and most important skills we can teach the apprentices." Here's Kenny's favourite recipe for rosemary focaccia, best made in a wood fired oven.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
