Born in Britain, her passion for good, honest food and the best ingredients was instilled in her by her Italian grandmother and mother.
After starting out in the kitchens at Aubergine, Zafferano, L’Oranger and Petrus, Angela became head chef at Petrus, helping the restaurant to achieve a Michelin star. She went on to launch Amaryllis in Scotland; Verre in Dubai; MENU and The Grill Room at The Connaught, with Gordon Ramsay.
Since 2008 Angela has opened and remains involved in critically acclaimed restaurants such as Michelin starred Murano in Mayfair, and Merchants Tavern in Shoreditch. In 2013 she opened the similarly championed Cafe Murano, a brassier little sister to Murano, where she creates the menu with Sam Williams as Head Chef. In June 2015 a second Cafe Murano opened on Tavistock Street, Covent Garden, and in 2019 a third site in Bermondsey.
