Chef Wong's cooking style is as multiplex as her life journey; taking her from India to Malaysia, Australia, Los Angeles and England. Soon after moving to London and whilst working as Sous Chef in Verden of Clapton, Wong fell in love with British produce, in season and from the best, small-scale British producers.

Wong's journey helped to forge her iconoclastic pan-Malaysian/Asian concept she's dubbed 'Rojak', which relives Malaysia's culinary melting point of Malay, Chinese & Indian food, but also borrows techniques and dishes from cooking along her route, with a grounding in seasonal, quality British produce.

Honing his craft in Michelin-starred Italian restaurants, spanning Milan, Paris and London, and training under pioneers including Massimo Tringali and Theo Randall; Oliva's 'Sardinia Series' with table&candle is a nod to his formative years on the Mediterranean island, "mostly spent fishing for urchin, foraging for mushrooms and herbs, and making pasta, lots of pasta" - implanting his high standard for sustainability, seasonality and locality of ingredients within his menu design.

As table&candle’s most esteemed guest chef yet, Jitin Joshi’s reputation precedes him; as former Executive Head Chef at Michelin-starred haunt Gymkhana of Mayfair, the ‘Ethnic Chef of the Year’ (Craft Guilds 2009) winner Joshi’s earlier career saw him working under the wings of chef-legends from Eric Chavot to Jason Atherton, in Michelin kitchens the world over. With table&candle, Joshi is seeking “to shake the cobwebs off the British concept of an Indian takeaway”, with his ‘A Journey Through India’ menu, articulating dishes from various regions in his inimitable style, using the finest flora and wild fauna indigenous to these isles.
