One of only a trio of three-Michelin starred chefs operating in the country at present, Heston Blumenthal’s rise to the top is even more remarkable considering that, bar a few weeks’ of work experience, he is entirely self taught. Born in London in 1966, he discovered a passion for food while on a family holiday in France. He opened The Fat Duck in Bray in 1995, originally serving classical French dishes, but slowly developing the scientific approach to cooking for which he is now famous. His individualism paid off with the award of a third Michelin star in 2004. In that year he also bought the Hind’s Head pub in Bray, where he showcases traditional British food to great acclaim. The past 18 months have seen him pick up an OBE for services to the hospitality industry and star in his own quirky television series, In Search of Perfection.
