Mark Edwards is executive chef of the Michelin-starred Nobu London, the first restaurant to be opened outside the USA by the celebrated Japanese chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, and its younger sister Nobu Berkeley Street, which also holds a Michelin star. Edwards also has overall responsibility for all Nobus and Matsuhisa restaurants outside of the US and plays a key role in setting up the kitchens and training staff at all new Nobus that have opened since 1997. 

Teaming up with Nobu Matsuhisa, Edwards trained in California before opening Nobu London as a Concession in the Metropolitan Hotel on London’s Park Lane in February 1997. Ubon by Nobu opened in Canary Wharf in November 2000, followed by Nobu Berkeley Street in August 2005. Edwards has also co-authored a Nobu cookbook, Nobu West, which was published in 2006. 

Edwards mans the pass on a daily basis, and his interpretation of Matsuhisa’s modern Japanese fusion cuisine secured Michelin stars for Nobu London in 1998 and Nobu Berkeley in 2006 along with three AA rosettes for Ubon by Nobu.

  • 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
  • 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
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • 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
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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

  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad

  • 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

  • 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
