Top chef, Marco Pierre White, has been persuaded to don his whites and get behind the stove to cook one of his favourite dishes with us at Manchester Eats this July 7th & 8th.

Notorious for not giving public displays of his prowess, Marco has agreed to do a rare cookery demonstration during the weekend festival. He hung up his apron in 1999 and his rare appearance at the festival is one not to be missed.The renowned “Godfather of Modern Cooking” has developed a restaurant portfolio with 50 restaurants in the UK, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  His most recent venture is Mr White’s English Chophouse on Canal Street in Manchester which offers a combination of English classics alongside French flair across a menu which specialises in steaks and grills. Marco trained under Albert and Michel Roux at London’s Le Gavroche and holds the honour of being the youngest chef to achieve 3 Michelin stars.  Commenting on the coup of encouraging Marco to share his culinary secrets at the festival, Denise Harris, Event Director at Manchester Eats, said:

“As a rule Marco does not cook at public events, so we are thrilled that he has agreed to help us mark our inaugural Manchester Eats festival by getting behind the stove and preparing one of his signature dishes. He will also be being interviewed so visitors can find out a bit more about the real Marco and what inspires him. It promises to be an insightful event.”

The event will provide an opportunity to Marco to be reunited with one of this many protegees, Matt Tebbutt.  Matt was trained by Marco at The Foxhunter and has gone on to carve out a TV career, appearing regularly as a presenter on BBC’s Saturday Kitchen.
