Book Emily Watkins

Celebrity Chef

Emily Watkins is available to book for your special event – we work in direct association with Emily Watkins’s representative as a booking agent for her. Emily Watkins owns The Kingham Plough in Oxfordshire along with her husband. She is also the chef at the restaurant. Assisted only by a junior chef, Emily’s simple dishes bring out all of the flavours of the wonderful pantry of the Cotswolds.

After a degree in business at the University of the West of England , Emily began her career as a chef . Her love for food and cooking and wanting to learn anything and everything about cooking got her on a plane to Italy with the Michelin guide in her hand and little else. Walking the streets of Florence, Emily explored only those restaurants which had received high ratings in the guide. Finally she managed to get an unpaid job at one of her favourite restaurants, Ristorante Beccofino, where she dedicated herself not only in the kitchen but also waitressing tables. She fully utilized her time learning the language and impressed with her commitment the restaurant offered her a full time paid job in the kitchen.

She felt she was ready for her next challenge, after spending two and half years of inspirational learning in the Italian ethos. She had always dreamed of working at her most favourite restaurant The Fat Duck. Her head chef encouraged Emily to apply for a job and she did. She was immediately offered the job she wanted.
