“I’m delighted to be bringing Café Murano back to Wilderness for our 3rd year. The team love being part of this festival, which this year features yet another fantastic line-up of chefs and restaurants. There’s so much to experience on top of all the great food – from music & culture to wild swimming & the stunning setting – it’s an unforgettable experience.” Angela Hartnett
Angela Hartnett, MBE, is one of the UK’s most loved chefs and restaurateurs, known for her sophisticated yet simple, Italy-inspired cooking. She is the founder of Cafe Murano – returning to bestow Wilderness with yet more beautiful food. Cafe Murano is considered to be the brassier little sister to Murano – her infamous London restaurant.
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, L’Oranger and Petrus, 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 2007 Angela was awarded an MBE for services to the hospitality industry, and the following year she opened her own restaurant, Murano in Mayfair, where she is Chef Proprietor, and holds a Michelin star. Serving modern, seasonal food with an Italian accent, Murano is one of the few restaurants to hold 4 AA rosettes and was included in the Good Food Guide’s Top 50 restaurants for 2015.
In September 2013 Angela launched the critically acclaimed Merchants Tavern in Shoreditch, in collaboration with Head Chef and this year’s Saturday night Chef’s Table star Neil Borthwick, and Canteen founders, Dominic Lake and Patrick Clayton-Malone.
