Born in Canada and raised in New Zealand, Anna first trained as a chef under Fergus Henderson. She then worked with Peter Gordon in 1994 at Green Street and again in 1998 at The Sugar Club, Soho. In 2001, Anna, Peter Gordon and partners opened their award-winning Marylebone restaurant, The Providores.
In 2005 Anna left The Providores to focus on developing The Modern Pantry, which opened its doors to critical acclaim in August 2008.
Since opening, The Modern Pantry in Clerkenwell has gained two AA rosettes and been listed as a “Bib Gourmand” in the Michelin Guide 2009. In the same year Phaidon published “Coco”, a book showcasing 100 of the world’s top up and coming chefs of which Anna was one.
She has since appeared on BBC’s Saturday Kitchen a number of times. The New Zealand Society awarded her the accolade of New Zealander of the Year 2010. Anna’s culinary philosophy is driven by the desire to please and excite the palate by renewing everyday cooking with modern ingredients and global inspiration, The Modern Pantry, in fact.
Anna Hansen published her first cookbook ‘The Modern Pantry Cookbook’ in 2011 & was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List 2012.
