Angela Hartnett, MBE, is one of the UK’s most loved chefs and restaurateurs, known for her sophisticated yet simple, Italy-inspired cooking.
Born in Britain, her passion for good, honest food and the best ingredients was instilled in her by her Italian grandmother and mother. After starting out in the kitchens at Aubergine, Zafferano and L’Oranger, Angela became head chef at Petrus within seven short months, helping the restaurant to achieve a Michelin star. She went on to launch Amaryllis in Scotland; Verre in Dubai; MENU and The Grill Room at The Connaught, with Gordon Ramsay. In 2008 she opened her own restaurant, Murano in Mayfair, which holds a Michelin star. Angela followed this with Café Murano in 2013, which now has three London sites, serving modern, seasonal food with an Italian accent.
She’s a regular on food TV shows such as Best Home Cook and Great British Menu.
