Jason Atherton was the first British chef to complete a stage at Spain's famous elBulli restaurant in 1998. This invaluable experience laid the foundation for his unique creative style and fuelled his insatiable thirst for culinary knowledge.

With seasoned experience, having worked under great chefs including Pierre Koffmann, Nico Ladenis, and Marco Pierre White, Jason joined the Gordon Ramsay Group in 2001 as the executive chef for Verre in Dubai. In 2005, Jason returned to the UK to open maze in the heart of London, launching what would be the most successful brand in the group. Jason left Gordon Ramsay Holdings in 2010 to create his own restaurant company, Jason Atherton Ltd., with the flagship Pollen Street Social, which opened in April 2011.

Jason's recipes and articles have appeared widely in magazines and newspapers including: The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Observer Food Monthly, Waitrose Food Illustrated, Caterer and Hotelkeeper. Additionally, he demonstrates regularly on food shows in the UK and abroad. He is a regular guest on 'Saturday Kitchen' and 'Market Kitchen'. June 2008 saw Jason win the third hugely popular series of BBC2s 'Great British Menu'. In 2009 and 2010 Jason returned to the 'Great British Menu' as a host.
