Florence Pugh has always spoken lovingly of her parents, Clinton Pugh and Deborah Mackin. Her father is a famous restaurateur, and her mother is a dancer and renowned actress who most likely instilled in her daughter a passion for performance. But it doesn’t mean Florence got nothing from her father. She, on the other hand, had learned to cook from him and used it to launch a little food series on her Instagram during the epidemic.
She recalled feeling a bit weird during the pandemic until her father phoned and advised her to attempt cooking again, a passion she had forgotten about. That’s exactly what she did. The actress revealed all of the recipes her father had given her as a child. She showed her admirers how to make “banged up veg [vegetables]” in the first video. She imparted all of the wisdom her father had handed down to her in another instruction of herself preparing toast.
“A critical aspect of this recipe that I learned from my father very early on is that there’s no use in having a decent piece of toast unless you’ve got excellent butter with it,” Florence said.
Who Is Florence Pugh’s Father?
Pugh’s father is much more than a wealthy restaurant. Clinton is credited for turning Cowley Road in Oxford, England, into the hip hangout it is now. The restaurateur comes from a catering family, and his parents formerly owned and operated a small hotel. So he knew he wanted to work in catering from the beginning, and he acquired a certificate in restaurant design.
Clinton opened the elegant Baedekers to Cornmarket, the Mexican La Cantina Kazbar, and Cafe Baba with enthusiasm and hard effort. He also owned The Lemon Tree on Woodstock Road, the classy Grand Cafe on High Street, and a number of other restaurants. The most well-known, though, was Cafe Coco. Cafe Coco was constructed from the ground up by Clinton, and it has a particular place in his heart. He created the whole café himself and inaugurated it in 1992. However, despite the fact that his restaurants were doing well, the designer sold several of them in 2019. Clinton was exhausted and wanted to rest at the age of 61.
Clinton Pugh Is a Wonderful Father
One would assume that with so many restaurants to oversee, Clinton would have sacrificed his family for his work. But that is not the case. Clinton is a devoted father who loves his children and wife. In addition to Florence, he is the father of Arabella Gibbins, Toby Sebastian, and Rafaela Pugh. Throughout an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge in August 2022, the Little Women actor revealed that her parents and siblings relocated from England to Spain during her youth for health reasons.
She reported that she had asthma and tracheomalacia, both of which caused breathing problems. The physicians suggested that a warmer temperature would be preferable. So the Pughs packed their belongings and relocated to Spain.
“My parents were young, had three children, and chose to just ‘vamanos.’ So that’s something I’d want to do when I’m older. “It’s such a beautiful way of simply thinking and looking at things and getting up and traveling and living elsewhere,” the actress remarked.
