Marco Pierre White – from Enfant Terrible To Mellow Sage
British celebrity chef and restaurateur Marco Pierre White (also crowned Enfant Terrible), famously handed back the three Michelin stars he was awarded over his stellar career, when he gave up cooking 20 years ago.
And of those three stars, earned when White ran Restaurant Marco Pierre White, and The Oak Room, he says, “I didn’t win them, it was the team behind me. I was the conductor, the composer – without the team what can you achieve?”
In Auckland in November for his international judging role at Taste of Auckland, the godfather of modern dining met up with Hospitality Business. Demonstrating to an invitation-only group of chefs and guests at a foodservice professionals event by Unilever Food Solutions, it’s obvious White now appreciates simplicity in modern cuisine!
