Ivan Brehm is Head Chef and Owner of Restaurant Nouri. Rooted in the Latin word for nourishment, Nouri is a partnership with award-winning hospitality group Unlisted Collection. Ivan who inherited his initial love of food from his two grandmothers developed a cuisine that is as eclectic as his own lineage. Ivan uses food as a medium to showcase the similarities and universal touchpoints we all share, irrespective of our background which he affectionately refers to as “Crossroads Cooking”.
Working alongside renowned chefs such as Heston Blumenthal, Claude Bosi and Andoni Luis Aduriz has undeniably had a fundamental impact on me, not only in my professional development as a chef but in my personal development as a leader. While my time at their restaurants allowed me to develop my repertoire of culinary skills, the lessons I learned extended far beyond refining my practical and technical ability in the kitchen and they continue to shape me both as the person and as the professional I am today.
