Even if you don’t consider yourself a foodie, you’ve probably heard of the triple Michelin-starred British restaurant, The Fat Duck. It is helmed by celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal, who has just won the prestigious 2017 Diners Club Lifetime Achievement Award, joining the ranks of elite international chefs like Alain Ducasse and Jöel Robuchon.
“For me, this award is particularly special because it’s voted by my peers. After 20 years of The Fat Duck, I now feel like I’m just starting – and those 20 years were my apprenticeship. The future is very, very exciting,” he says.
While he hasn’t opened a restaurant here yet (fingers crossed!), here are 10 things you should know about this extraordinary kitchen master:
