Food by John Lawson – Leigh on Sea

John Lawson really can say he’s learned from the best. Lawson finessed his art in the kitchens of Raymond Blanc and Gordon Ramsay – no lamb sauce is missing on his watch!

Back in 2015, John was diagnosed with a brain tumour and he used food to support his ongoing recovery. His restaurant sources local seasonal produce which is nutritionally prepared to support our bodies.
