Shaun Hill

Shaun Hill, co-owner and chef of Glasshouse Brassiere, has won a multitude of awards during his career, including two Michelin stars.

Bought up in London’s Primrose Hill, Shaun’s first job cooking was in a café at London Zoo. After working at various restaurants in London, he worked at the internationally renowned Gidleigh Park in Devon for nine years.
