Vogue 25 List Includes Chef Margot Henderson
London-based New Zealander Margot Henderson is one of today’s “most lauded chefs”. She joins Vivian Westwood, the Duchess of Cambridge, Nicola Sturgeon, FKA Twigs, and others, on the annual Vogue 25, which celebrates the “women shaping 2021”.
“Renowned chef Margot Henderson’s food has long been a byword for elegant British cuisine, and post lockdown, it was to her Rochelle Canteen – a restaurant open nearly 20 years – that the in-crowd flocked,” British Vogue reports. “It was a just reward. As a mentor, alongside her husband Fergus, to some of today’s most lauded chefs, her impact can be felt across the UK’s gastro scene – a fact recognised with last year’s OBE. In an industry of fickle fads and viral recipes, she’s a true influencer.”
In a 2020 interview with New York-based publication, Index magazine, Henderson spoke with Emma Reeves about the challenges of Covid-19 on hospitality businesses, her association with galleries and artists, and the beginnings of Rochelle Canteen. Australian Patricia Niven, Henderson’s “regular collaborator”, took the photographs.
