Sea Containers Head Chef

Sea Containers names new head chef

Sea Containers has announced the appointment of Tom Morgan as its new Head Chef, taking over culinary leadership for both Sea Containers Restaurant and Lyaness Bar.

Born and raised in London, Morgan embarked upon his culinary journey aged 16, quickly ascending from Commis Chef to Chef de Partie within three years. Most recently, he worked as Area Operations Chef for MJMK restaurants, collaborating with chefs such as Nuno Mendes and Santiago Lastra at Michelin-starred venues.

At Sea Containers Restaurant, he applies his philosophy of simplicity and quality, focusing on minimal ingredients of premium quality – think English broad beans, peas, tomatoes, lamb, chard and scallops.

“I’m very passionate about the simplicity of cooking, using minimal ingredients to truly highlight the quality of the produce,” he says. “It’s about letting the natural flavours shine and crafting dishes that are both honest and memorable. I’m excited to now be bringing my skills to Sea Containers and look forward to sharing my vision and passion with the team and guests.”
