Who we are

Sunil Varma

Pop-up chef guru

Sunil Varma Pop up guru

I have the lovely job of overseeing the development of street-food concepts across the company. This involves identifying relevant food trends and designing concepts that reflect our evolving food culture. Iā€™ve brought together a team of chefs ā€“ Pop-up Pioneers ā€“ to help come up with ideas and put them into practice at client sites.

In guiding and supporting the chefs, Iā€™m drawing on 10 yearsā€™ experience running pop-ups for BM clients ā€“ including a TV station and several financial organisations. During that time, Iā€™ve adopted dishes, ingredients and trends from nations as varied as Japan, Switzerland and Macau, always looking for creative ways to offer healthier dishes. Before BM, I worked as a chef at other foodservice firms, a healthy meal delivery service and a high-street chain. I also spent four years as a chef de partie at Peter Gordonā€™s Sugar Club in Soho. 

Over the years, Iā€™ve gathered many great foodie memories, but Iā€™d say the highlight is Christmas with all my family. The variety of cuisines and flavours on one table just doesnā€™t happen at any other time. I also love how food can bring people together, which is why I always volunteer to cook for Crisis at Christmas
