Proof’s Place is a versatile test-kitchen that develops and reinvents recipes; always vegan. Working globally, Proof takes his kitchen wherever he goes, he is currently based out of London.
The passion of being behind a knife in the kitchen, and the freedom to materialize imagination is what drives Proof’s Place. Recreating dishes he could observe, smell and feel, but never eat - led to a fresh take on every dish. Not using traditional recipes, he builds ideas from the memory of his senses, always starting with the experimentation of processes.
Using pop-ups as a platform to share, Proof currently makes appearances in London, Tokyo, and San Francisco, with the intent to spread wider.

The Japan Connection
What started as a guest chef at Alishan in Japan, soon turned into a chef residency, strategic consultation to various vegan outlets in Japan, as well as herding the vegan community via pop-ups in Tokyo. The project continues and strives to create a closer connection to the London scene.
Starting as collaboration between Proof and Pomodoro_e_Basilico [at the Vevolution event 3/2017], Kyoto Kitchen has grown into a pop-up kitchen for exclusive events. It grew out of their excursions in Kyoto, whilst randomly stumbling across Mamezen Soba where they had one of the best Ramen; the Soy Milk Ramen.
