Elizabeth Haigh was the founding head chef at Pidgin in East London, where she guided the popular neighbourhood restaurant to a Michelin star barely a year after opening. Her dishes have been described as bold and exciting, fusing her Singaporean-British heritage and fine dining cooking experience with a passion for wood-fire cooking. Elizabeth originally studied architecture, but after a stint on Masterchef UK in 2011 she realised that cooking was her true calling. Elizabeth was awarded ‘Chef to Watch’ by the National Restaurant Awards (2017), listed in Observer Food Monthly’s ‘50 of Observer Food Monthly’s favourite things’, had guest appearances on BBC’s Saturday Morning Kitchen, Masterchef UK, spoken as a Financial Times Panellist, and a keynote speaker for SAUCE ‘17 forum in Estonia. In 2018, Elizabeth founded Kaizen House, a place of innovation and creativity which embodies an ethos and drive to learn and share. Kaizen House includes a YouTube channel, collaborations, and restaurant concepts such as mei mei, launched in 2019, and Bā in 2020.
