Swedish-born Mikael Jonsson started his culinary career as a food blogger, dining at hundreds of Michelin starred restaurants around the globe. A lawyer by trade, Jonsson’s extreme allergies meant he was never able to pursue a career in food. However, a new approach to diet 5 years ago meant the allergies dissipated, and he was free to eat and cook in ways he’d never been able to do.

Within a few short years Jonsson had found a site in Chiswick for his restaurant, Hedone. Famous for its sourcing and ruthless pursuit for the perfect ingredients, Hedone’s kitchen is a window into the fine preparation of produce that is unique to this restaurant.

Jonsson runs the restaurant in Chiswick with his partner Aurelie Jean-Marie-Flore whose previous positions include Front of House at La Trompette and Texture. AA Gill awarded the restaurant 5 stars within just a few weeks of opening, and it was named the National Restaurant Awards’ One To Watch within just 4 months of opening. Jonsson was given a Michelin star in the 2013 guide.
