Originally from Lyon, France, where food is the very essence of its culture; a city without compromise where its people are the toughest food critics. His parents owned a successful restaurant in the city and Claude grew up immersed in a world of produce, seasonality and the disciplines of a professional kitchen. 

Claude Bosi went straight from catering college to his apprenticeship. His career took him to Paris for the next four years, where he trained under Michel Rostang, Alain Passard and Alain Ducasse. At the age of 25 he moved to England where he became Sous Chef at Overton Grange in rural Shropshire. One year later he became Head Chef and earned himself his first Michelin star shortly after.

In 2000, an opportunity arose to purchase a site in the neighbouring market town of Ludlow. This was opened as Hibiscus. Once again he achieved one Michelin star within the first year of opening – and the second shortly after in 2003. Claude moved Hibiscus to its current position in central London, where it continues to be recognized for Claude’s passion for flavours, simplicity and elegance.

Claude Bosi
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
