Head Pastry Chef, Berny Osorio

Berny has worked with us from the very beginning with shorts stints away;
working abroad in Tokyo and mentoring pastry students.

Berny creates seasonal, contemporary desserts. The dessert menu reflects her endless love of working with seasonal fruits, different textures and colour. 

A must-try, and Berny’s personal favourite is the caramelised fig with bitter caramel mousse, brik pastry and sugared pistachio.
