Esteemed French chef, Claude Bosi, is the ideal entertainment for any event.

An expert businessman, Claude understands exactly what it takes to produce a profitable restaurant, taking into account originality and customer experience.

Starting as an apprentice, Claude worked at the Léon de Lyon, a stylish French restaurant specialising in a unique dining experience. In this role, he developed a foundation of skills which set him up for life. From there, Claude moved from Michelin starred restaurant to Michelin starred restaurant, including La Pyramide Fernand Point, Restaurant Chiberta, L'Arpège and Restaurant Alain Ducasse. While working at L'Arpège, the restaurant earned its third Michelin star, a testament to Claude's early success. As event entertainment, a chef like Claude can offer an authentic insight into the elusive world of gastronomy, through demonstrations and interviews.
In 2000, Claude opened Hibiscus in Ludlow, before moving the location to London. Within the first year, the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star, reflecting Claude's expert eye for good food. Hibiscus' move to London greatly impacted the culinary scene, adding a flair of originality and authentic French cuisine. Claude specialised in molecular gastronomy, using freeze-dried ingredients to blow customers away.
Following Hibiscuses closing in 2007, Claude moved to The Fox and Grape in Wimbledon, where he turned the failing pub around. Following the success, the famed chef moved to The Swan Inn, where he reopened the lavish gastropub after refurbishment. As a reflection of his culinary meeting, Claude was awarded the 2018 Chef Award at The Caterer's The Catey Awards.
