The supreme skills of Simon Radley, the Chester Grosvenor’s executive chef, were toasted at a luncheon in his honour following yet another culinary accolade for the hotel.
Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor has retained its Michelin star for 25 consecutive years and managing director Jonathan Slater decided to pay tribute to the award-winning chef, by hosting a special lunch for Simon and friends of the hotel.
Simon’s family joined the celebration, as did former Grosvenor chefs, including John Rudden, Steve Chestnutt and Richard Cotterill, who have continued in successful careers.
Simon, whose passion for the job and long hours were commended by Mr Slater, took a break from the kitchen, letting his team do the work. Simon paid tribute to his head chef Ray Booker, describing him as an inspiration and said he and the team deserved praise too.
Press officer Katie Bentley said: ‘Retaining the Michelin star for 25 consecutive years is a great tribute to Simon and the team. We are delighted by this achievement and it was felt appropriate to celebrate with a very special lunch in the Simon Radley restaurant.n
