Book Andrew Kojima
Andrew Kojima is a British-Japanese chef based in the Cotswolds. After reaching the pinnacle of amateur cooking success in the final of MasterChef 2012, he turned professional after a fast track training programme in Michelin starred kitchens across the UK and Europe, including Le Gavroche (Michel Roux Junior), Royal Hospital Road (Gordon Ramsay/Clare Smyth), The Ledbury (Brett Graham), Dinner by Heston Blumenthal (Ashley Palmer Watts), Whatley Manor (Martin Burge) and Oud Sluis (Sergio Herman).
Since moving to the Cotswolds, Koj has proved himself as one of the most naturally talented and imaginative private chefs in the UK , with an enviable VIP client list including The Queen, sports stars, musicians, supermodels and Oscar winners. He has also written columns for award winning magazines such as Crumbs, Spear’s and Cotswold Life. He is a judge of both the Great Taste Awards and the World Cheese Awards.
Although his repertoire includes British, European and Asian cooking, Koj specialises in Japanese cuisine where his heart and heritage lie and he is on schedule to open his first restaurant in Cheltenham in late 2016. Andrew Kojima also teaches, promotes and demonstrates Japanese cookery through pop ups, cookery schools and food festivals around the UK.
Andrew Kojima is available for a wide range of culinary events, including dinner parties, canape parties, demonstrations, talks, cooking classes and his popular Gastroquiz.
