The 30th National Restaurateur’s Dinner fast approaching and we are incredibly looking forward to the exquisite menu created by our dream team of chefs. Royal Academy of Culinary Arts’ Sara Jayne Stanes OBE and Brian Turner CBE have hand selected chefs that are the top tier of gourmet cuisine to create a menu that will bring all the attendees gastronomic delight. The National Restaurateur’s Dinner team of chefs include: Jeff Galvin, Jason Atherton, Tony Fleming, Henry Brosi, Sarah Hartnett, along with our two Sommelier’s, Gerard Basset OBE and Laura Rhys MS.
Each of our chefs have a long history in the restaurant industry mastering the culinary arts, being awarded prestigious awards, and Michelin stars. Jeff Galvin has worked at many Michelin restaurants until in 2005 when he teamed up with his brother Chris and opened their first venture, Galvin Bistrot de Luxe in Baker Street. Their empire has since expanded and have opened eleven and counting restaurants around London and Edinburgh.
Jason Atherton started early in his career working with world renowned chefs before joining the Gordon Ramsay Holdings in 2001. From then on, he started The Social company which has grown into a global restaurant group including Michelin-starred Social Eating House, Little Social, and Berners Tavern. Along with his restaurants in London, he also has critically acclaimed restaurants in Hong Kong, Shanghai, New York, Dubai, Sydney, and Cebu.
Tony Fleming worked at multiple restaurants including the 3 Michelin starred Oak Room as the sous chef. Fleming is now the Executive Chef at the soon-to-open boutique lifestyle hotel L’Oscar in London, where he offers substantial and varied food and beverages.
Henry Brosi is the executive chef running The Dorchester’s kitchen since 1999. He has won multiple awards for his culinary abilities. Brosi is responsible for over 100 chefs and oversees the six kitchens within the hotel. Henry has been hosting the NRD since 2010.
Sarah Hartnett specialises as a pastry chef and since 2016 has started working freelance. In her earlier days, she worked at many different restaurants, and has participated in many industry fund-raising events. Sarah’s talent has been recognised with several awards including the Pastry Chef of the Year at the Craft Guild of Chef Awards.
