Claude Bosi graduated from catering college and did his apprenticeship in Lyons. He then moved to Paris to Le Chiberta (Michelin two star) as demi chef de partie, for one year. His next position was for two and a half years with Alain Passard at L'Arpege in Paris, starting as chef de partie, then climbing to sous chef - during this period L'Arpege moved from two Michelin stars to three. This was followed by nearly one year at Alain Ducasse in Paris, as chef de partie.
Claude then moved to England in November 1997 to work as sous chef, and then head chef, at Overton Grange, south of Ludlow, where he earned it a Michelin star in 1999. During this time he met his wife Claire and they opened Hibiscus in 2000. In the same year, the restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star, and then its second in 2003.
Claude and Claire Bosi sold Hibiscus in Ludlow in March 2007 and re-located to London. In its short history, Hibiscus in London has received numerous accolades for its modern French cuisine, and was awarded a Michelin star with a 'rising two star status' in January 2008. By January 2009 the restaurant earned its second star. Hibiscus was also shortlisted for French Restaurant of the Year and New Restaurant of the Year at the London Restaurant Awards 2008.
Claude's food has been described as 'just about perfect' by the Daily Telegraph and he himself, was listed in the Evening Standard's Top 1000 London's Most Influential People in the food category as an 'up and coming' name to watch.
