Nura Food Co. is owned and operated by Adam O'Shepherd, a chef with 20 years experience within the restaurant and food industry. Adam is based in Brighton and open to projects all over the UK and abroad.


Adam worked in some of Sydney and Stockholm's top kitchens before moving to London where he was part of the team to open globally renowned chef & author Bill Granger’s first UK restaurant. He moved on to become Head Chef at Shoreditch eatery Lantana, voted best brunch by Time Out Magazine. Most recently he won a Lotus Award for his innovative menu at The Bok Shop, Brighton, which he oversaw from conception to opening a second site. 


Adam has since broadened his creative offering within the world of food to become a freelance food creative. Working in food styling, advertising, recipe testing and recipe development/writing, Adam has worked on many cookbooks, including Chefs at Home by Hospitality Action, Jack Stein's World on a Plate, Ben Tish's Moorish and Angela Clutton's The Vinegar Cupboard.

He recently completed writing, shooting and styling his first cookbook as author, MasterChef Green, available now from all good book sellers.
