‘The Battersea store feels pretty special inside’

2023 marked the 10th anniversary of Borough Kitchen, and while co-founders, Justin Kowbel and David Caldana don’t like to talk about success, that’s exactly what the last decade has been for them. PH sits down with the duo to hear about their journey so far, and their plans for the future.

In 2013, best friends Justin Kowbel and David Caldana were living in the same apartment block, both working in finance and wanting to take a new path in life. Both loved to cook and entertain, were keen foodies and wanted to set up in retail.

The pair settled on setting up a cookshop for the London foodie scene. Justin explains: “I love cook shops and we had ventured into many of them across the world. We had accumulated what became the core basis of our product range over ten years. And although some of those were available here, we wanted to present them a little more, pull them together and share them with the broader London foodie scene and at-home chefs.”
