Kyle Marshall has two great loves: food and cricket.

After graduating from Capsicum, Kyle’s cricket career took him to England for six months. While there, he got his first taste of working in a professional kitchen with a part-time job in a small village café in northern England. Upon returning home, he landed his first hotel job at the Southern Sun Hyde Park Hotel where he worked as a commis chef; a good introduction to working in a fast-paced, high demand environment.

A year later, he moved to 54 on Bath in Rosebank, met his mentor Matthew Foxon and learnt to be a chef, through long hours, plenty of coffee, striving for perfection and the kind of camaraderie he’s only experienced in a team change room.

Three years later he moved to Palazzo Montecasino where he learnt just how much he could achieve on his own, giving him the confidence to be where he is now: creating and executing his own menus.

COVID-19 lockdown was particularly trying for the service industry. Kyle used this time to break away from hotels and, with Gay-Lee by his side, he struck out on his own, starting a career as a private chef. Although he had no idea of it at the time, this decision would change the trajectory of his life.

At present, Kyle is a partner and executive chef at The 11th Floor where he applies his talents to continually develop and shape the vision, food and customer experience of our rooftop restaurant into the highly sought-after venue it is fast becoming in the heart of Bedfordview.
