Selin knows the hard yards because she has worked them. She knows how to mentor because she has been mentored by many wonderful and talented people. She knows the risk of setting up a new business because she has done that several times. Between her and Laura you’ll be in safe hands.
There are a handful of people over your career who play a defining role in who you are and what you do. For me, without a doubt, Laura was one of those people. I learnt everything I know about managing a well-functioning restaurant operation from her. I’m hugely grateful.

Working with Selin has been a life-changing experience. I've learned to operate an efficient kitchen cooking quality food in a healthy work environment while maintaining profitable margins. Selin's pedagogy involves connecting the intricate details of this industry to a broader scope of business and producing quality cuisine.

Selin has always been there for me. I am someone who is in a constant flux or overthinking, anxiety and not feeling good enough. Her advice when opening my first permanent stall at Borough Market was invaluable.
Partner & Brand Manager

Waitrose & Partners were delighted to enlist consultancy from Selin and Laura to gather their authoritative and honest perspective surrounding food and culture.
Director of Brucan Pubs (2018)
Laura has always been a great source of advice and support over the years that we have known each other and worked together.
Her knowledge, experience and understanding of not only the forward-facing elements of our industry but also the cogs that turn behind the scenes make her an asset to any project.
