The brains behind Santo Remedio, Edson Diaz-Fuentes is arguably the most revered Mexican chef in London – but his life in the kitchen began much earlier, at a young age in his hometown of Mexico City. After travelling around the country (in pursuit of the very best food), he learned the ropes at the eponymously named Casa Oaxaca, which has consistently graced the 50 Best list of restaurants in Latin America. From there, by way of New York, he moved to London to take on the role of Head of Menu Innovation at Thomasina Miers' renowned Wahaca chain, where he worked until 2016, when he opened his own restaurant, the aforementioned Santo Remedio in London's Shoreditch – a new spin on his cult Brooklyn supperclub of the same name.
