barbecoa new chef

On 2 January Barbecoa welcomed Dean McClumpha as our new sous pastry chef. Dean, who graduated from the Fifteen Apprentice Programme back in 2006, spent three years working on major events such as Formula 1 before being brought back into the Fifteen family as junior pastry chef at Fifteen. He rose through the ranks to become head pastry chef three years ago, and will now bring his inventive touch to Barbecoa’s delicious dessert menu. The Jamie Oliver family is really strong and we’re really lucky to have so many brilliant Fifteen graduates in the kitchen at Barbecoa – at the moment we have John Relihan from 2002 working as our senior sous chef and Dong Tran as demi chef, as well as Oliver Quelch, Julian Bailey, Morgan Evan Dixon working alongside Dean in the Pastry section!
