From pop-up pioneer to leading chef and restaurateur, Will Bowlby has achieved enough success in under a decade to last him a lifetime. He is the founder of the highly-acclaimed Indian restaurant Kricket, which now has three branches: the original flagship in Soho, a second in Brixton and a third – its largest – in White City. Bowlby first became enchanted with cooking through the success of the celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and set up his own catering company ‘Will2Cook’ aged 16, which funded his degree and travels afterwards. After his studies, Bowlby asked the legendary chef Rowley Leigh how to break into the industry and got his first job working at Le Café Anglais in Bayswater. At 24, he was headhunted for a head chef position at a European restaurant called Cheval in Mumbai and the rest – as they say – is history.
