Design for Breakfast at Dishoom with Jessica Seaton
Talk | Dishoom Carnaby Street — For our members

On 23rd May we were joined by members for breakfast at Dishoom with Jessica Seaton of TOAST, to explore connections between creativity, food and place.

In 2015 we began a series of intimate breakfast events for our members, hosted in the comfort of Dishoom’s Carnaby Street conservatory. We have heard from The Gourmand's Dave Lane, North Design's Sean Perkins, Gorgeous Group's Robbie Bargh, Dishoom's own co-founder Shamil Thakrar in conversation with fellow restaurateur Alan Yau, Tom Broughton, founder of Cubitts and, most recently, Jessica Seaton. 

Jessica, as well as being the co-founder of lifestyle and clothing brand TOAST, is a cook and author of Gather Cook Feast — a cookbook that celebrates the connection between food and a sense of place. Having recently completed the sale of TOAST, set up with her partner Jamie in rural Wales over 20 years ago, we heard from the serial creative entrepreneur about the journey from start to finish, the challenges they faced and her plans for post-TOAST life.

Over cups of chai and breakfast naans, members posed their own questions to Jessica about how she and Jamie established the beautiful and authentic brand vision that has supported the success of the company, and how the business has recently refocused. We ended the session with a look at her latest projects, by exploring her love of food and cooking, and how this connects her to nature and the creative process.
