It was just another food technology class at school when students – of which the budding chef Oli Marlow was one – were tasked with making a traditional recipe. The brief, a shepherd’s pie. Unfortunately, Marlow’s potato topping suffered from a Titanic sink, which prompted his teacher to announce that he would “never be a chef.”

Two decades later, the pie – which Marlow still refers to as “the worst one in history” – may as well be hurled in the direction of his teachers face as Marlow would go onto becoming a hugely successful chef, leaving a sparkling trail of Michelin stars in his wake.
