Taking place at the University of Central lancashire (UCLan) Foster Building on Monday 11 March a talk hosted by the Ribble Valley based celebrity chef Paul Heathcote.
This should be a great opportunity to quiz Paul about how he felt when he held two Michelin stars or when the Charles Heidsieck Champagne Guide voted his restaurant ‘one of the best restaurants in the world’ or being nominated ‘Chef of the Year’ in 1994 by the Egon Ronay Guide. Unfortunately, I don’t think Paul is going to be cooking up any delicacies on the night for you to sample.
Paul Heathcote MBE, who runs Heathcotes Brasserie and The Olive Press in Preston, spent twelve years under the guidance of Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons as well as working in Switzerland, Sharrow Bay Hotel, Ullswater, The Connaught in Mayfair, London and executive head chef at Broughton Park hotel in Preston. He also writes a regular column for the Lancashire Evening Post.
Paul has two cookbooks to his name – Rhubarb & Black pudding and Heathcotes at Home. In 2009 was awarded an MBE for his contribution to the Hospitality Industry.
Paul was one of the first modern chefs trailblazing ‘back to the roots’ British cuisine before these were industry standard. He is rightly famous for his sublime bread and butter pudding. A dish he had on his very first menu back in 1990 at his original Longridge Restaurant
