Seb began his cheffing career at the age of thirteen, training in British cuisine before falling for Thai food during a tour of Asia in 2008.
On returning to London Sebby started working at Jane Alty’s acclaimed The Begging Bowl
, before moving to 2015’s most lauded new opening, Smoking Goat
, Soho, where he spent more than a year as head chef.
In 2016, Farang was born, seeing Seb team up with Dan Turner
to host a series of pop-ups, supper clubs and private catering events before bringing their residency to Street Feast
. 2017 saw Farang adopt San Daniele , Highbury, as a longer term location, prior to announcing it at their new permanent home.
