Since leaving his native Ireland at the age of 17, Richard Corrigan has gone on to become one of the most assured chefs on the London scene. These days he’s best known to the wider public through the BBC series Great British Menu but he kick-started his career under Michel Lorrain at the Meridian Hotel in Piccadilly in 1985, before becoming head chef at Stephen Bull’s Blandford Street restaurant. Foodies took note of his skilful rustic cuisine after he won a Michelin star at the famous Fulham Road restaurant in 1994, and paid even more attention when he repeated the feat at Lindsay House in 1999, two years after moving there. More recently he’s won plaudits for revitalising the fortunes of Bentley’s. In 2006 he teamed up with Ryanair founder Tony Ryan to open the Mill at Lyons restaurant, near Celbridge in County Kildare, Ireland and 2008 will see him open a restaurant at London’s Grosvenor House hotel.
