Magnus Reid


When I’m not cooking I like to put creative energy into painting and music.”

Magnus Reid began his impressive career at the age of 16, cooking in cafes across Perth, Australia. Since then, he has become a force in the hospitality industry in London; creating ‘pop-up’ food events, opening Shoreditch’s Tuckshop and, later, C.R.E.A.M, where he is the sole owner. Using food to unite London’s hungry crowds, Reid’s ever-expanding ventures only seem to grow.
