Pied a Terre chef Shane Osborn 2006Osborn.gifOsborn first got behind the stove in his native Perth, in Australia, and after moving to London at the age of 20, he quickly came to grips with the capital’s restaurant scene. Stints under Philip Howard and Marcus Wareing ensured he was well-tutored in classical French cooking before taking up a position at Pied à Terre as sous chef under Tom Aikens. He hadn’t anticipated Aikens’s swift departure in 1999 but nonetheless proved more than capable as his successor, winning the restaurant a second star in 2003. Unfortunately it was forced to close in 2005 following a fire but reopened a year later fully refurbished and better than ever. With his business partner in Pied à Terre, David Moore, Osborn opened a sister site, L’Autre Pied in Marylebone at the end of 2007.
