Chef Michael spent time in Spain after graduating from catering school, cooking and working front of house, which cemented his love of the country’s cuisine. When he returned to the UK in his early twenties, he worked at the Longbridge restaurant in Lancashire, L’Ortolan near Reading, Old Beams in Staffordshire in 1993 (where he earned his first Michelin star as a young Head Chef) and Waldo’s Restaurant in Cliveden Hotel in Berkshire in 1996, where he retained their Michelin star and achieved four AA rosettes.
Following that was Michael’s Nook in the Lake District, where he stayed for four years as head chef, retaining their four AA rosettes and Michelin star. Moving to The Burlington Restaurant at The Devonshire Arms in the Yorkshire Dales in 2002, he ran the kitchen for five years, securing a Michelin star and four rosettes only six months after joining. In 2007, he moved to the Latymer Restaurant at Pennyhill Park, where he built it from a two-rosette establishment to a Michelin-starred establishment with four rosettes in 2009, five rosettes in 2011 (one of only eight restaurants in the UK to receive such an honor), and a second Michelin star in 2012. Michael has now earned two Michelin stars and the AA’s top hospitality award of five AA Rosettes for Gidleigh Park.
