Oliver is a chef and author whose work focuses on seasonal food.
His book, Food for All Seasons - a personal and informative wander through the food year, published by Faber - is out now.
He is passionate about local sourcing and it has been an important theme in his projects over the years, both for the seasonality it entails and the narrative it brings to the food he cooks.
Oliver is well known for having run Konstam and Konstam at the Prince Albert, the former his legendary café in London's King's Cross, the latter his ultra-local restaurant that featured in BBC2's series 'The Urban Chef'.
He now works on a variety of food projects, including residencies, demos, pop-ups and seasonal supper clubs. Oliver is also a food stylist whose work has appeared in many publications including The Guardian and The Sunday Times.
"Oliver is a uniquely talented and erudite chef. His early experiment with hyper-local food at Konstam gave him an insight into the fine detail of seasonality long before foraged foods and local produce became the trend so evident in the cuisine of today." - Jacob Kenedy, Head Chef & Proprietor, Bocca di Lupo
