Award-winning conference and events venue, 30 Euston Square, has appointed Alessandro Negro as the new Executive Chef.

Alessandro brings a wealth of culinary experience, with over 18 years in the industry. His gastronomic journey commenced in the city of Bologna, Italy, where he began his career working in banqueting. Notably, he served as the Senior Chef on the cooking team for the Italian President, Giorgio Napolitano, before making his way to the British capital. In London, he further honed his craft at renowned restaurants such as Aubaine in Selfridges, Chelsea’s Medlar Restaurant (boasting 1 Michelin star and 3 AA Rosettes), and the Rabbit Restaurant, previously overseen by the Gladwin Brothers, which championed the farm-to-fork philosophy allowing Alessandro to master the art of utilising every part of an animal.

Early in 2021, Alessandro’s culinary journey took him to Moldova, where he supported Oro Restaurant with menu development and training. Later, he further distinguished himself as a chef judge on the country’s highly regarded national television programme, Lupta’n Bucate. He returned to London at the end of 2021 to become the Co-Executive Chef at the Chef Academy of London, prior to joining the team at 30 Euston Square.

Alessandro Negro comments: “I am thrilled to be overseeing the talented kitchen team at 30 Euston Square and am looking forward to stepping up into this new role and applying my creativity to create exciting menus as we approach 2024. My cooking draws inspiration from all corners of the globe, fusing diverse flavours and ingredients for a unique and lasting culinary experience.”

The new menus are dedicated to elevating the finest seasonal, sustainable British produce through contemporary culinary techniques. They draw inspiration from various countries, honouring the authenticity of each dish, and seamlessly blending flavours and cultures for an entirely unique gastronomic adventure.
