A chef’s chef, Howard is rarely away from the stove and has won numerous accolades including two Michelin stars (awarded in 1998) & the BMW Square Meal Restaurant of the Year 2008. After studying bio-chemistry at university, he signed up for an apprenticeship at Roux Restaurants before working with such heavyweights as Simon Hopkinson and Marco Pierre White. Known for his classy, but seasonal French food, he has spent much of his career nurturing young chefs and enjoys showcasing his protégé Brett Graham at his other restaurant, The Ledbury in Notting Hill.
