Supper Club Hosted by Phil Howard

Publish Date: October 7, 2021 Posted By: Rosanna Frost

We would like to introduce the Royal Academy’s Supper Club a new culinary experience to show case some of the great talent and restaurants we have within the Academy.

Pitched as informal fundraising events our series of Supper Clubs will take over a number of restaurants for one night and provide guests with an enjoyable evening of food and wine. Hosted by members of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, while also raising funds to promote and protect the Hospitality Industry through the Academy’s education and training initiatives.


As the brainchild behind these events Phil Howard who sits on our Management Committee will host the first Supper Club at his restaurant Elystan Street (43 Elystan Street, Chelsea, London, SW3 3NT) on Monday 8th of November 2021


Phil Howard has been a member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts for over 10 years and has supported our objectives wholeheartedly as an active member. Phil sits and advises on our Sustainability Committee and is a regular visitor to St Georges Primary School to deliver valuable Adopt a School sessions to children hungry to learn.


Phil Howard’s work life started at Roux Restaurants in 1988 having decided not to pursue a career in Microbiology, a degree in which he attained at the University of Kent at Canterbury. From here he moved on to train under Marco Pierre White at Harvey’s and Simon Hopkinson at Bibendum.


A quiet culinary professional, an absolute chef’s chef and highly respected culinary figure, Philip Howard is the chef/co-owner of Elystan Street in London SW3. Elystan Street opened in September 2016 to huge critical acclaim and has amassed many awards since. Prior to that he was the chef and co owner of The Square from it's opening in 1991 to its sale in March 2016.


Phil’s distinctive modern French food has enjoyed great critical acclaim and huge consumer success. It’s reputation has been forged through the delivery of pleasure through harmony of flavour rather than technical wizardry or innovation. A first Michelin Star was awarded to The Square in 1994 and a second followed four years later in 1998.


We are very privilege to benefit from Phil’s generosity and culinary skills for our fundraising event and would love for you to join us for what will be a fantastic evening.
