(PRWeb UK) February 17, 2011
Warren House in Kingston are introducing a series of Michelin starred evenings that will take their fine dining to a new level. Working alongside the Warren House team of chefs led by Head Chef Paul Bellingham, Michelin starred masters will create, prepare and cook special menus, tailored for Warren House and The Hammersley Connection members and guests.
The first in the series is double Michelin starred chef, John Campbell. Having recently joined The Dorchester Collection’s new hotel, Coworth Park, John is recognised as one of the UK’s finest and most celebrated chefs. In 2008, John was honoured with both the Catey’s “Chef of the Year” and the “Training and Education” award. For many years, he has run a successful academy for young, enthusiastic chefs from all over the world and has established himself as an important opinion-former in the industry. John is a familiar and regular face on our televisions and has also judged numerous Masterchefs.
John’s superb cooking has earned him an international reputation for innovation, expertise and flair. Critics have hailed him as the “Cerebral Chef”. He has a degree in international culinary arts and has written a number of books including Formulas for Flavour. Indeed, the guides have recognised him as one of Britain’s most excellent talent.
John has built himself a reputation for outstanding cuisine. A true master at his art, his cuisine is considered Classic European with an emphasis on flavour, tweaked through scientific techniques. His genius lies in combining complex elements into dishes that look and feel simple and natural. John experiments with the effect that both textures and temperature have on flavour, intensifying tastes to challenge the taste buds. For the inquisitive diner, he pushes the boundaries and delights with unexpected and gastronomic results.
