Adventurous palates as well as some of the most famous names in the food worldâ€”including Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain, Jamie Oliver, and Daniel Bouludâ€”flock to Fergus Hendersonâ€™s London restaurant, St. John, to indulge in his culinary artistry. A conscientious and resourceful chef who lives by the motto â€śNose to Tail,â€ť Henderson advocates using everything that is possibly edible of fowl, beast, and fish, creating dishes that fuse high sophistication with a strong tradition of rustic thriftiness.
