Owner of Urban Pantry, Kate Frobisher, was invited to the Rosewood hotel last week to be celebrated as one of the ’30 under 30′ movers and shakers in the hospitality industry. The award, from the industry’s journal CODE, marks her as a rising star. The editors wanted to showcase hospitality as a viable career path in this country.
Kate, who is 29, won first prize in the National Breakfast Of The Year Awards last year, for her Australian inspired cafe on Devonshire Rd, which she opened in 2015. The cafe has also won three Time Out London Awards.
The good news for The Chiswick Calendar’s readers is that Urban Pantry is a member of our Club Card scheme, offering subscribers 10% off food and drink.
Kate trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine before spending a year in Sydney, where she fell in love with their breakfast culture. She is now planning to open a second cafe in east Twickenham, just by Richmond Bridge.
