Chef Patron, Marcus Wareing Restaurants
Marcus Wareing’s contribution to British food and the next generation of cookery talent has made him one of the most respected and acclaimed chefs and restaurateurs in Britain. Originally from Southport, Merseyside, the son of a fruit and vegetable merchant, Marcus began his career aged 18.
He received his first Michelin star at just 26 – one of only a handful of chefs to be recognised at this age. Over the last 30 years Marcus has been involved in the creation of some of London’s most celebrated restaurants. Founded in 2008, Marcus Wareing Restaurants began with the opening of the two Michelin-starred Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley (now known simply as “Marcus”).
The group now includes The Gilbert Scott and George’s Bar in King’s Cross, and Tredwells in Covent Garden. In the autumn of 2014, Marcus joined the television series Master Chef: The Professionals, where he continues to act as judge and mentor, and in November 2017 Marcus published his seventh cookbook, ‘New Classics’, with Harper Collins.
