CURATING LUXURY FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELLER

FROM THE EARTH

FROM THE EARTH

‘‘This is a very personal journey in food for us and our family,” says Keeley Haworth, describing Plates London – the ‘nomadic’ restaurant she founded with her brother Kirk earlier this year. Prior to their joint venture, a teenage Kirk and Keeley worked together at their father Nigel’s Michelin-starred restaurant in Lancashire. Keeley went on to pursue a career in creative branding, while Kirk followed in his father’s footsteps, chefing in the kitchens of a host of prestigious restaurants. However, the siblings’ lives took a rather unexpected turn when Kirk’s health began to deteriorate during a stint at Sydney’s Quay restaurant. Months of ill health ended in a diagnosis of Lyme disease and, faced with a lifetime of chronic pain, Kirk decided to re-evaluate his diet in the hope of improving his health. “I noticed I was in more pain some days than others,” he explains. “I started to keep a food diary and ascertained that red meat, refined sugars, dairy and alcohol were causing more inflammation in my body.” From this, Kirk refined his diet, eliminating the foods that intensified his symptoms. “It helped me manage my pain better, and I ended up adopting a fully plant-based diet.”
