Meet Scott Hallsworth. As head chef at the acclaimed Nobu for six years, Australian-born Scott has mastered the art of Japanese cuisine. His modern style combined with the explosive smoky, umami flavours found in his dishes make him one of London's most popular chefs.

Nobu was where Scott learnt how to cook Japanese food at the highest level and spent six years at the helm of the Michelin-starred restaurant, even helping open a new branch in Melbourne. However, he grew tired of creating recipes for the menus without making a name for himself and decided to leave to set up his own ventures, including setting up the hugely successful Kurobuta restaurants.

Fast forward to 2017, Scott sold Kurobuta and opened up Freak Scene, a three-month pan-Asian pop-up in Farringdon which proved to be another huge hit. Pre-Covid, Freak Scene went on to become the ever-popular restaurant in the heart of Soho, London and is now opening its door at a new location in the coming months.

Strap in, press play and enjoy listening to Scott's fascinating story.
