"And when she was questioned, why she didn't purchase the product she said, well, I'm using something very special for my plastic surgeon and I'm very happy with the results. So I'll come back to harrods next time. I am, I think she was a Middle Eastern princess. So and I used to buying a lot of products and now we just came back from a trip from Dubai and I see how they purchase products. When they love something, they love to give to their cousins and their entourage and they really like to share their gifting is so important. So when they find something unique, they like to share with their whole family and community. So Harold's actually called us the buyer from harrods called the clinic and she said that she's quite interested in having a sample of this product. Now we have a very close relationship with this bio. She's a director in harrods and she told me that she was looking for medical brands at that time. This was ten years ago. They were developing the whole technology with gadgets. It was the time of the clarisonic and the different devices and Harald's was leading the way in the technology division. And they were very much interested in medical doctor brands, even though the trend back then was very much organic and different trends. So there were not enough doctor brands. So she was really fascinated that there is a doctor in London that has produced something that's really has dramatic results. So we went and we presented the product. It was a very long journey. They kept asking for more samples, just like the patients in the United States clinic. Can we have some more? And can we have some more? They kept calling and giving to the whole department. And eventually, they were very excited with the results, and they said that they wanted to launch the line. And this was 2012. You know what I love about this story is that it's so happenstance, because I think nowadays, you see brand founders, you see dermatologists, plastic surgeons, it's so almost. It's calculated in a way, like what is happening in the market today. You know, you gotta, I have to ask you about derm talk on TikTok in a little bit because you see all these dermatologists and plastic surgeons like dancing around, promoting their products and I'm always wondering like, wait, you have a medical degree. You don't need to do this. So I'm just wondering, you know, when I think that obviously our patients pushed you in the destruction, but you told me last time we spoke that harrods really helped you think about the positioning, the packaging, like how to communicate this to a wider audience. What you guys describe that a little bit? Yes, I think for me, it was a nice opening experience that as you said, coming out from a doctor's office, I had no idea how to launch a commercial product. However, the experience of the team of harrods is unparalleled. I believe that when we met in 2011 for the first time, they were receiving around 50 requests a month for products to belong in the beauty department. And they were choosing only two a year in order to launch. So you are in this very competitive environment, which has only become even more competitive nowadays. And they gave us the right insight from the other side. How do the consumers perceive a product? What are they looking for in order to understand the message that you're trying to give? And as a doctor, I needed this important assistance back then to formulate.

The one answer this as something that most people don't realize is that very same instructors who are teaching on college campuses and saint. Harvard yale are teaching service branch academies there are teaching at the naval academy. This happened to the bill clinton previously. You had to be actually within the military to teach at a service branch academy under clinton you had the same civilian professors coming in. And these are the guys who are absolutely pushing radical agendas and. They are teaching the next officer class i. This is a huge huge problem. Now like million themselves are products for example of columbia their products of the same ivy league system. That is bad enough.

"So stupid that i even have to elucidate if if there if i walked into harrods and there had been seventy percent amish women were jewish women or something else that would be altuve struck we as a little odd doesn't feel like whatever london felt like at one time and if you don't let people just think about that or talk about it then you're gonna lead to all sorts of other crazy things absolutely right i think howard's and selfridge's which is another famous posh shop in london. Well the the reason i just wonder thing the reason it struck me so because i am aware that we live in a weird time related to terror and everything else and that when you're in a place that has i mean harrods is just this pack. You're just sort of being with the mob from room to room. Yes it's so pack well. If there were groups of men that you could only see there is yeah you would think it's alarming. Not just just is it sounds whatever but yeah just is but you know i think i completely agree. I think the burqa is a ridiculous offensive horrible rable item of clothing. I think the idea that a woman needs to cover from head to toe so all you can see is is is ridiculous. It's offensive to women because it covers them in this black cloth and it's offensive to men because the whole idea of it is that these women are so sexually attractive that men cannot control their impulses impulses. It's it's a deeply offensive garment. I also happen to defend women's right to wear it. Even though i know that's very complicated tecate because i know that lots of women don't exercise free choice when they wear this gama but my great concern is that if you want to say in in the u._k. Or france or belgium if viewer to say you are banned from wearing this garment in public. My great concern is that most of those women would not go out in public so i think it would actually limit their freedom in a way that would be incredibly destructive but this is the problem we face in contemporary society where it's become unacceptable to say. I absolutely defend your freedom to wear this ridiculous item of clothing this backward archaic medieval item of clothing. I defend your freedom to wear that but i think you're wrong. I think it's it's antisocial. Oh i think it makes life more difficult because i cannot see your face. I cannot engage with you. That's where i think. Political correctness is really it causing problems where it's no longer acceptable to say fine. Do what you want to do but everyone else must have the right to criticize what you do instead. We're all supposed i a novel on obediently at all these various different ways of life even if we know inside our hearts and minds that it's a wrong way to live so the the expectation of political correctness that you must simply 'obediently except all lifestyles i think is a serious problem yeah and you sort of hit this <hes> anti-social but it also creates this odd situation where you need to see. Someone's face to read cues. You can read a lot in the eyes but there's things about someone's is facing the way they lift their brow and their moves and all of those things that allow us to actually connect a little bit more so then it creates secondary level of disconnect that that's that's right.

Lord Bilimoria on the Business of Beer
"Now in the u._k. In particular you will struggle to find an indian restaurant saronto that a dozen serve cobra beer launched by lord karen bilimoria three decades ago the brand success story and is now exported to over a forty countries around the world however lord bilimoria entrepreneurial passan's being all without bumps along the way he joins me in the studio to talk talk about the lessons he's learned how the business of beer exchanging and the brand s- plans for the future but i he explains how the whole story actually begins dennis with bono sticks. That was my first business venture. Because i played polo for cambridge we beat oxford <hes> in the <hes> and i then organized and led the first <hes> indian tour for cambridge university's team and i came back with some sample poodle sticks and i started selling them and before i knew it i was in business and selling them to lily early wide to harrods to the queen's <hes> sadler's and we were in business and that was a precursor because my big idea when i was a student at cambridge was to bring out a beer from india india a beer that would satisfy both lager and ale drinkers alike because i i found i hated physi- english loggers and i loved english british ale but i found that the air was too bitter and too heavy and <hes> didn't accompany food at all older. It was very smooth when you're drinking zone and i found on the physi- loggers were just awful drink on their own and just did not go well with the food because they were bloating so that's been the idea evolved while i was a student at cambridge to come up with this bear that sits in between a logger nail refreshment for lager smoothens a financial combined they would appeal to all types of beer drinkers anywhere in the world have globally appealing taste aced and most importantly a beer that would accompany or food including indian food and curry so what were the first actual steps then in launching that business launching cobra for i was the lucky introduction to india's biggest independent brewery which again the biggest stroke of luck had the best brew master in india a young dynamic brewer from india who'd spent six years in the czech republic in prague had from prague university was a biochemist and knew all about brewing beer had worked one of the top czech beers pilsen during his internship he knew all about i knew nothing about bring beer but i had this idea and i sat in the laboratory with him in bangalore and conveyed this idea to with thirty samples of bottled title beer from england carefully selected saying this is what i like about this year. This is what i don't like about this beer trying to convey this extra smoother less gassy taste of cobra which led to very complex recipe which is what cobras and we've got this craft beer boom in in this country at the moment. We're covers is an ultimate craft beer. It's called malted barley rice rice maize wheat. It's double fermented sco three varieties of bavarian hops. It's a really delicate complex now. On the highest idea we should know more about beer back came the day when you were approaching this brew. No i knew what i wanted. I knew the tastes that i wanted as a drinker as a consumer and i saw that gap in the market and and sure enough when we brought out cobra it did demonstrate straight away that it went incredibly well with food we ninety-nine percent reorders from day one and my hi dream was to produce the finest ever in beer then to to make that a global beer brand and <hes> once you get those reorders in those early days it gives you the confidence to go go on extrapolate that into a global beer brand well. You lost in one thousand nine hundred nine and he didn't have much money for advertising partly due to your student debt. So what do you think think were the main two weeks. How did you manage to get your bottles in restaurants. Then i find that when you start and businesses and entrepreneurs and i think any entrepreneur would probably doubly identify with this you have to cross what school the credibility gap that nobody knows you. Nobody knows your brand. You have zero credibility. So so how do you convince people to supply to finance you to buy from you when you have zero credibility and i find that people will do those do things if you are passionate and have faith and belief in yourself and in your product and your brand and in your idea because that gives is people the confidence and the fates to trust you to give you a chance and i always believed i had something that was going to be different and that was going to be better and that was going to change the marketplace. How many respirators were trying to say no to you. Oh the the word you come across more than anything when you start is a very short word and it's a two letter word and and it's no would you like to buy my no. It's just a no and you have to make note a yes and you have to convert obstacles into opportunities and i could give you example after example of how we had to convert obstacles into opportunities for example we could only import the big double size six fifty bottles from from india because the brewery said you're probably going to fail and we only produce six fifty emma bottles even in india to this day that ninety percent bear sales in india are sold in a standard six fifty. I'm double size bottle and they said if you want more bottles it means ordering different modes change parts for our bottling line investment by us. If you're around in one year's time we'll give you a small bottles but first prove yourself so the big bottles and you go to the restaurants in the u._k. At that time they were i used to small bottles or draft beer now. We couldn't draft all the way from bangalore and the restaurants that what we're gonna do with these big bottles and you convert that obstacle into an opportunity and you say well. That is the way sold in idiots. You'll centric way of nydia and it's a double sized borough so when you're selling you're selling to c._o. Selling more beer and then you win. You serve indian food at the tables often. Your customers was we'll share dishes in the same way they can share this bottle and using a sharing concept you'll find you will sell more and more food and then what is more people at other tables. We'll see how what are they. Drinking looks like a bottle of wine knows auto bottom lines bottle outright and it spreads like wildfire and your weight is also leave the bottles on the table. It frees him up to do other the work so everyone wins your business. Your business grew exponentially during the first years but you'll be since journey didn't go oh all without bumps for example the year two thousand eight hundred. It's difficult for you wasn't it. I always say that <hes> <hes> success is a relative term and success is not a destination. It's a journey and most entrepreneurs will will say to you. It's a very difficult tough and challenging done journey with lots of ups and downs and i nearly lost my business three times and the last time was in two thousand nine <hes> during the financial crisis in the great recession when we nearly lost it. We came very close losing everything and each one of those times that i lost my business often. It was things out of the blue very few people in the world. Very few of the economists in the world predicted due to the financial crisis. There was less than a handful around the world who predicted it so when things come out of the blue it's how you deal with those crises and yes you can look back and one of my favorite things thanks good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment so yes. I made mistakes looking back on it with probably had far too much debt. I i did not anticipate the financial crisis. I probably hide some of the wrong people but the things that got me through each of those crises was having a very strong brand. Cobra grew was having the support of my loyalty members who were excellent and my family my wife who stood by me through the ups and downs where i met one year after i started cobra and also the third thing was always doing things the right way with integrity so it's better to fail doing the right thing then to succeed doing the wrong thing. What do human points equity will the best definition of the word integrity and people will say doing the right thing acting honestly <hes> the best definition i ever ever heard was from the archbishop of canterbury ruin williams when he was archbishop canterbury who came to visit the zorostrian center and i'm patron of disaster and community here in the u._k. Given smallest communities in the world and i welcomed him as a patron and then he made his speech and he said lord bill morris has used the word integrity twice in his speech speech and he said the word integrity comes from the latin and greek words intiga integrum and he says is the restaurant parsi communities renowned for his integrity and the word integrity means wholeness. You cannot practice integrity. If as an individual you're fragmented in front of the light you can only practice integrity if your whole and complete and i've never forgotten that and <hes> we've always tried to in in british play with a straight bat and i've found that helped get me through the crises

So the likes of copy fly and wrote three the holy Dan was to make us move chocolate drank, but by chance by a lot. We don't really know justify to the tablet chocolate and the eighteen forties. And that was the beginning of against the fuss chocolate. Evolution if you like. And of course, industrial revolution is on, on companies who are making chocolate during start to make chocolate bars as well by the eighteen hundreds at that point amid dark chocolate, and it probably been quite better than quite powerful by the late in hundreds day or daily pair that have been added and milk chocolate was created and likewise, white chocolate. That was done in Switzerland. And early nineteen hundreds chefs if you like start to chocolates, bon-bons felt talons chocolates and Belgium in Brussels. And that was the beginning of the chocolate, the chocolate, I feel like that's the stems from, and of course, a lot, but like the French French, but he's today, the very much faster market, not so that it can it comes from. So I started clue wise, both those countries both Setis in particular have incredible has Dedaye with profession. Hence why they're always go great stories and you know. Foundation of what they do. And the u k you said something that really links with me. We don't have the same constraints the same shock whose, if you like what we do and what's harmed in London. And I've really been in London since the whole foods sort of, you know. The foot evolution. If Eli has been incredible. And a lot of it's been done to the fact that we don't have the same has today and also the same pressures. So as Spokane for me to do Atari, must've chocolate, and sell it must shot, no one's going to get to offended by anything. People quite light to see me my Moloto boundaries. While I think, and France, you could find more difficult because they are fairly veg dress. No, no. I love session and talked about that. I love being classic import do by do like to be, you You know. know, make things a little bit more interest in a little bit more exciting sometimes. And I think that's you know, put me London in particular so exciting within the industry. I think it's really interesting are monogamous sort of proud Brit, and it's frustrating. Sometimes our lack of reputation, not, not now but historically and deservedly. So we had, we had a bad reputation for for food and energy income would consider to be fairly back with it's been fascinating to watch that speed of change. And trying to understand it is interesting, the point, you just made their about lack of constraint. We seem to have this ability to learn fast and to innovate in particular, with what's going on around the Brexit and trying to work out place in the way it's, it's nice to know that. Get quite without mentioning it, it's nice, let me 'cause do how heavy is that chocolate? You said that was just one. Okay. Okay. And I'll let you taste. Filled the room with this intense. Chocolate. That's what it's all about. It doesn't smell sweet at this has create chocolate, Roma rain feel and I'm wearing a reasonably sized room. But it was like instant. Wow. This is a ski escape it has it's incredible. It's maybe I'm glad you said, we're going to get to try bail. Okay. So now when you say you've worked for so many different shafts, you must have evolved, and now, you're, you're interested in passing those skills on what's your style of, of mentor ship, and is very different to what you went through is a further eve Lucien. Yeah. I mean it's a question. I think you know, when we have a young chef we want them to get the foundation, I keep using this web foundation and what they do. So if you take broad Thames pastry dough work. No one had to laminate as puff pastry of mastery known high into. Just to do simple things line entirely Casey's. Very, very well known. I to me a very good cram. Petit CA known to make of etiquette Sabi on peace, moose criminal rich customized all these skills, and not just making something once been able to make these skills over a period and making them as the second nature to you make a very good Nash knowing how to infuse the claims for the chocolates, making a good cannibal. So as to sweet, but it's not can enrich fool flavor. I think I just want young people are at any age that what for me to Tomasz Louis-based scales. And then when they have those skills in place, it gives them the foundation to go. Whether it's what can meet to have more emperor in what we do or the go-to, then the next stage of the career. But I think what I was taught I guess, try to keep that sort of structure a quite like who I was taught I like the pillows of what we do. I try not to. Too far off the I like I like to classic foundation. And unlike people young people just to grasp those skills is, it's good to know that they are being handed because I think there's so much this huge growth in casual dining sector where all too often. You're just get thrown in as a as a cook more than a chef and you never go through that classic training. And you think you're chef and you call the chef and hats off they're working hard, and they're that Houston food. It concerns me that so many now don't go through that, that traditional into the kitchen and the base in the work really understand where where food comes from history of food, which is why hopefully conversations like this. Inspire people to do it. So which part of your job now gives you the most pleasure. I would say because there's various things McMahon. I think. Fundamentally my customers been happy. There's nothing nicer. When you get feedback weather center store, the retin tear saying the love to east today that the year or thank you so much for. The chocolates, we had last week a Mason, we love to kick about, I think dies sci-fi and not the time to, to right. I thought law icon tonight off, and that makes me feel good that Mukasa much Hoppy and not doing the right things. And I guess also seen young people evolve, and that next that makes me feel good to, I mean, I think what do I talked to be brought? And the look on the scale and have not happy team is important. You know what's in restaurants for the people come many would come after three or four months, and move to the next one continuous cycle of people come in and go and does not get rather people were steady evolved want us to take the time. But, you know, Lebanon pace that works for everyone. And then we get the benefit of that's key. And I think seeing someone goes to the who John satisfying mass. It's funny I we in this amazing. You know, they say it's better to give them receive. But so, so commonly the answer that question is in hospital is we just really liked to give other people pleasure and to see them light up? And and house was so often is around time as well as taste and flavor. So often people with you, they might be sharing those jobless or share and a Keiko's bows. And, and it's that time with family or. Maybe time with the kids where you give them their Easter eggs and stuff like that. But the food is such a nostalgic way of creating these memories in life experiences. I mean. You know, you think about times in life, and you've done something special, and more often than not foot has been around for the winter agree, brash strand of your life, partner, friends wherever, and it's incredible. Even around a table for that it's fans coming over and whether you go on holiday somewhere, I'm sure when you go away somewhere to be an evening or afternoon. We went for lunch dinner somewhere, not place, a massive patents. I think food we shouldn't underestimate the power of the table as an incredible where for lice and even got two young daughters. And for me a tries much as I can to at least have one meal, a day from the table, whether it's breakfast of dinner, always tried to have at that time. So we can I don't know, CIA type of no mobile phones, tablets, no television bet music. Okay. But just you know, because I think, as especially a very special. Policy of a job, my wife bonkers, because even if it's just interact over the kids, I still music cons from candles and beyond maybe like the fire. It's. And you can make something or something so many years ago this still resonates today. Essentially, like a coffee, I said, love coffee Marco, please. Thank you. You've called Markle Markle, and then not chef. Michael. I'm a just a plastic Cup of. He said Billy, no half the coffee -ympia from China and NS, an echo tastes better than it does. Something incredible about it just when it so much of it is, is around how we feel this is the other restaurants are. It's not always the case with chefs because sometimes always just about the food, but it is how we feel when we're eating that food is the lighting and the museum assoc mass say my wife doesn't get it, and she's a bit more of a sort of applaud with food on the plate whereas, I can't help myself place it up and presented. I'll make the kids beans on toast. Slew. He's too. Just just nice about I mean, it does come about my and Madonna dance used to get to be Cottee. But my father used to make h choose sort of a mullet. They'll cook it on food came from that generation, you know, there wasn't a ready meal with something I didn't actually realize really existed until I was older than lie. If you go into the supermarket, and buy some new put in the microwave obey the their own foods, you know, and does kinda come from the heart. There's something very real, enroll Abella speed of change, with, with convenience food in the last twenty years has been bonkers with all of the Nongoma come in come come into the end. But with all of that experience you've got now and I think there's a lot of people on shore, come to you. They'll listen to this, and they'll hopefully be inspired to get into the industry or, or more. People seem to be wanting to go into hospital his job. It's funny being up here in London. And I just spent the last couple of hours walking around and I used to live in London. And it reminded me of this. Of all the suits and how grateful I am I suppose the I don't work in a Bank, but I know a lot of people. But there's a lot of people who kind of leave banks go into break in or do something else, but business advice wise on on that. No in so many hospitals, business various there, any businesses vice that you hear where you go. That's nonsense that that's from an academic book, or is there any really good?.

The procure are from South America Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador Peru threes. Tastic for high quality cocoa beans, and they'll all be the variety of what we call trinitaria Ankarlo. So within chocolate family thousands of.

So the chocolate they produced for me is sublime. And again, keep the with the best, this is why won't people to hear these stories. Because in every nation, it doesn't matter whether your. Of the farm, kind of grow in the faddem town on the farm, not all of them. Whether you're the not whether you've kind of scoured the world and start making you. I'm basis the amount of work and the knowledge that goes on, you can only get from from human beings. You've dedicated a significant their lives to their to their thing. But what you know about, you know, I don't know where to go and get the best almonds or the best nut. So the best chocolate, albeit, I'm learning during this podcast. Lot's of Yan's who take everything to a level, which is incredible. And I think that's why restaurants are so expensive because we've really got to do is get the very best people. Find the very best supplies who really know that shit really level, they and privileges to them in a place answer to bring it for the consumer and say that you got this. We've really scoured the world for this.

I mean chocolate is fairly fairly much. Commoditised.

Pete hair may jump, oh heaven. They've all came out of the. A new wave of chalk Lottie is actually put it comes from is this? I love the fact that the human beings, we can get so bloody anal and passionate and excited about one nation. Stream. Yes, because we disappointed. The industrialization of food in the last fifty years. It's just the cycle and, and hopefully we'll come out the other side. But I just love the fact that there's enough people who have just taken it. So another bonkers levels. Thank you. You're welcome. I you're right. I love the actual, you know, when you really get under the Nettie karate, and who detail that goes in tip, what we do for the science are the peculiar as quite as quite fulfilling its getting back into the business is fundamentally. It's going to be a business. It's got to make money much as we can get into detail in love and get super passionate excited everything we do can be about money, but it's going to be there. Two thousand eight you go into into partnership with, with the restaurant family. So what was the motivation for that? What, what were they providing? So as opposed financial support, and I guess, an opportunity, my little shop in Richmond, which by was was going, great guns, and taking it to the next level, on taken. We had. I guess a look by him. Well, that's Kennedy dream kitchen above the shop underneath. And you can make a little eleven otter best let Levin now I'm honestly quite east. We are now and are like I am now but. You know, sometimes you could to try things, and in different Reuss. And there was an opportunity to good to be true something's to, to be true anyway. But it was an exciting partnership. We, we set up the business to go. You know, I guess, in central London, if you like almost nightscopes enrichment and another financial clout to, to, to do that. The beautiful shop of Mr. off shelled and Belgravia. We defy Bolus I guess production facility and Trump, which allowed us to start supply various tales restaurants. So website online business. I'm also on the concession and how it's so so really I went from being a little shopping Richmond until much. Like a brand if you won't and I think not Johnny. You know, I've over the passion but I think the brands in a went another level, which I'll Barco, and I think that was that was good. That was a fantastic opportunity satellite co things we decided that I was basically definitely is about before he is a good night three and a half years ago. Yeah. Still a decent a decent chunk of time and to another level. Yeah. Here business, some partnerships and part of this is the kind of the business was stop hospitality that quite complicated. Things quite complex things. Looking back is there things you that you would do differently that experience you and is that impact on how you're moving forward? I think I think eleven and the journey that, you know. I am. I like to be in charge of what do I think, for me. I wanted just people in Kelly again, and I thought was going to be smaller, and more niche. I was quite happy doing and you know. Sometimes, you know, and business everyone's got different views and I think that's fine. But I think for me, I knew that I just wanted to be to, to believe in, you know, making chocolates and petits today and be my seven at that was going to be smaller than be. And now I'm much happier with myself and that's important and enter think missile shows happy to nothing. That's that's good. So we've come out a better place. You've Italian Harrods and now your on your website, and you do some partnerships, various people. But the next thing is the shop is thinking that absolutely, yes, so we obtained hundreds of kitchen now and not Acton worship, quite like and fed up and coming acting. And I used to run a swimming pool in it. She's okay. But it's just a catch in walks. And it's very easy to get into the central London, which is ideal for us them and because some clay punish us hotels, would you'll of the immunities and what curve Carinthia the modern oriental in fabulous tale. Cloudy cheese, the rats enter continental. So, of course, some great partnerships in most of the Glenmorangie, and Lauren petty and lots of events, which is fantastic. I'm sitting here today in the can we do a few events here with the guys which is a very, very excited. And in fact, it comes to the gut can you can sample a few chocolates, that we do with your crate. Level, Blanco teacher also to really around on the chocolate from the Anamika wonderful chocolate for the guys here Gulliver Spacey caramel. Richmond park. Honey joins us. Is this on the sort of the pop up cycle? Soviet around the street from that you're only here for two things he thinks he, you have chocolate events with the guys that can win a meal, a chocolate, and spied me, which will run until they're silent to the end of the month, so you could still with us because that's the challenge this afternoon news. Again, I think it's being create really successful how to look at the menu. Delicious hit chocolate. And if that's the whole idea just to get there, the world of chocolate there. And we also have it on chocolates, at the end, and the menu here that the Dow continue on a day, I'm of various chocolates, the, from the William coverage that we have invoked. So go a few different chocolates, and some of the other services establishments just around the corner at the Barbican and also got chocolates, which we have as Pettifor for also much, champagne some punches. Okay. So it's been yeah. I could eat like company to to what very like minded, and who Flynn somewhat what cannot special after tea promotion, glenham palace officer. Now is that's a nice place to go. Anyway. A load of can come and have your afternoons as the most exciting thing since I have I guess we launched my yourself as I'm I'm on. on in the next month or so a new batik, and so is in excellent into the what's going on just no you're literally in builder. But I'm Jan. And you, you crowd funded that is that right in front of that. Yes, I've looked the crowd for them. And I think it's fascinating. I think if one good thing came off the back of the recession the concept of go into lots of people for over money rather than one person for money is a really exciting thing. But how was that? And there was a bit of stress in the nothing's completely easy, where money's. I mean, I'd never I think. The fact that my brand is still in Harrison. You know. The that makes sense and how it's been a Mason. Up in hottest knife, based part of eight years, and that's been a clear relationship, very important and fundamental to William color plants. But having my own small batik as key to, to do more and window, if you like aunt, Jim, the last eighteen months or so. And looked to various different options, different sites different ways to raise money to do it because we only have money to a new batik is not the cheapest thing in the world to do. On we, you know. Sights on for various reasons, and so on Smith, Scott just pure state. Bob course to do that. Well, how to raise a little bit of capital. We'll have some couples who depend on to be a little bit more. So I guess and discussions with a good fundamentally. I shall we decided that we have the crowd funding route? Now try funding not to lose any equity. That was now a big club idea, but to give rewards tries his etc. So you could have. To this weekend. Ecorse for four or five, six people with William Kelly, a tougher making at your house. And you could have participated books and establish. It was one of the prizes. There's a few talks demonstrations, but some of the prizes and various things that unique for the fund the special treats Maude. Unique opportunities are great meal up sticky and chest that with, Gary and his team at the end of me with something that atom handling the frock and Covent Garden. So lots of unique prices and events that came off the back of that. But of course, when you see, we're gonna raise eighty thousand pounds as quite a lot of money to raise and bitter over four weeks. The first week was fantastic at at flu alone. And, of course, is this is this is going to do it. We're going to do and then it stopped for two weeks. Now I was warden warned that in the metal of this would really slow down. I didn't think it's still so dramatically virtually comes standstill and the reason being as and the beginning. The people that, you know, friends family, etc. Want to give you a leg up. They want to see getting shelf not be fantastic. So the. Pillow money, and the, by the by, by one of the wards, and you've got that support. But then other people who may be interested the need to get the water you need to build up on the social media. I mean, the campaign is driven through my Twitter account and cantabile to tweet and half here. But you have to get it takes time to degenerate, the Massey's on top of that. And we all do this. You see how long I got to go to beaks oke about ten weeks time and it wasn't really to the last week that started to go. And then you could just see everyday gaining momentum. And you think gosh, we're going to get hit on this. We're going to get here. And we did finally get there at the before they was going to say how close broke it by a few eighty four so really to shop even more of the money. So went into the shop.

"Plus the. You could have been caught and ships. Okay. So literally from school. Then you pretty much went went straight into stay into it. Yeah. And it's funny no point have ever lived. Barton thought thought to myself goes. I wish then the definite. Of always been really happy really excited. You know, after now of Tina career path there, no point, however, regretted of obviously enjoyed so I never looking thing all wish I'd been this. I wish it'd be a chip era, a carpenter never really happened. So it's just Chris, quite unusual, particularly in hospitality, because I think the compromise you make in this industry is it can be really anti-social hours. It's hard work. It's a lot of work in nights, and weekends when you in the kitchen early days. So, I think there's enough people who've who've looked at their windows box in the kitchen and thought my God, why am I doing this? I think absolute I think I think when you're young in Nevada beginning became an apprentice Sotero when I was seventeen and that was really very raw in, I specialized in peace, cheap very quickly that was an option. That was given to me as part of my apprenticeship. About member dunes split shifts always five days a week, occasionally sex, teas. And of course, you can friends by whom who got jobs, the let them for the weekends thousand nine hundred and you walk in a lot weekends because we can. Bessie teams Patel, and hotels. So you you've you're thinking, gosh, I can go back in and have a good time. But I don't know. I really enjoyed it. And I love Dan Neff, which is really exciting when you're seventeen years old, you've left. Scotland twice in your life. And you go to bed Patel, which Philly, young people say, say, your Lehrman. It was it was really fast trajectory to go straight into Gleneagles. How did you how did you get that? Yeah. And mallet will John name, many things, manual poor -tunities Norman's of came to me and not would be one. So I did a Ecorse at Glen Mattis technical college, which was an all city and goats court that was same for a year and a half, two years. And at the end of it. What a policeman an idea with a policeman as to, to give you somewhere to train. And hopefully the you on. As, as a job, you know, to start your career, and I was to San Andreas, which is not far. You don't love to the hotel and spent map must have the two months township if you like there, and then at the end the offered me a job, and I thought this is fantastic. But the job was, was only going to be to lock tool, but because the hotel was going to close because of all, do rennovation, etc. Etc. And reopen again in the spring, and I thought, well, okay. Well, I'll take that. And that's a jog. My dad's happy of a job. Keep him. Keep him sweet. And of course he had reservations about what was doing. I guess. Not, what old manual dock tough tough tough. An amazing my father father boys, but kickin didn't was a root for these Lodhi, if you like. And of course, the lesson can't see, but I've got a very strong. Bell man may got little checking arms here. So probably wasn't the I'm just going to go anyway, but I was associations here, but he was very happy that I got a job and I was getting paid. And I was getting on in the life. That was that was kind of fundamental to him. But what does it the cost of these said to me what we can do for you, whoever Willie we can organize you a job somewhere else? Juden period. And then come back to the course and that's going to be clinical Patel. So went to Gleneagles these said, that's great. We can organize that for you. But you could if you look at an apprenticeship so sort of, you know, I'm Dan hoard and so but should do we're about to the course and the chassis was called belly Campbell. And I always remember according to speak to him. And before it even sat there and it goes, you want to go planning with food, maybe an apprentice, I said, I do he said, why don't you do that? And, you know, I thought fear played because you could have been selfish and said, let you need to come back with agree to do this. But he thought that was a bad route for me. Get phone decent and what do get training and what do and really give them a platform to build a little kitty. And so I think that's a good thing. Sometimes in hospitality is human based industry is kind of like look go and go and live a great life. Live a good life unfulfilled potential. Yeah. Not people that work for me. And I want them to spend a chunk of time. If someone comes to see four months is Kenneth pointless, if someone spends eighteen months, two years, and the. If you need to go on the next part of the journey, I want to show and I want to thank them for that. Because that's a chunk of this municipal St. longer and Bush is amazing. But realistically, you know, you have to be unselfish at understood, and let people go, not Germany because I think, in that way, there's nothing washed and someone not being happy and what they do. And also other people in your team or see that you'd give the opportunity for them to move on, and you can help with them as well and not Germany, and I think that's important and invariably if it's meant to be people people come back later on and the more they've learned while they were the best. Absolutely absolutely. So the trajectory then was was the Savoy next or the knowing there was. Yes. So, so I spent my three years apprenticeship at Gleneagles are used to go through the glass school, a college student technology, one of my days off, and then it got to this ripe old age of twenty and I decided that my apprenticeship was going to finish an- I needed to go and see the world. And I think by left Scotland before teams by being taught, and this is the early ninety s we need to go to what can the best establishments, because because by now are got the cooking bug. I miss fair deterrment, and I wanted to be the best of what could do what to walk in a very best police to neglect was HUD very much that shift then was a charcoal denied incite needs pasta.

Screw that box off, that it was a kennel lengthiest someone you chain me initially, and that's gonna win. But he had said to me, you know, France, and there was no Google. There was no internet that is today. So I went into Pathum split Schefter Michelin guide because I'd hit eastern Russians two to three rations as weird you need to go and walk. So I thought right, I'm going to go in and do this. So I got this guy for France. I think attained a seventeen eighteen thirty eastern star rations are certainly in the cities and potus Saudi in France. And a row of all my letters as very little if any French at that point.
