The Chef

 

Adam Gray

Growing up in East Haddon, Northamptonshire, Adam Gray was set on becoming a chef by 14, and was the only boy in his school to choose home economics. He washed pots at the village pub, The Red Lion, while studying for three years at Northampton College, completing a City and Guilds day release catering apprenticeship. Adam Gray moved to London in 1989, cooking under Bruno Loubet at the Four Seasons Hotel, and following a short stint working in Melbourne, Australia, returned to the UK to work under Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons.

After meeting Gary Rhodes in 2001, he was made Head Chef of Michelin-starred City Rhodes, maintaining its star until he left in 2003 to open the new restaurant Rhodes Twenty Four at Tower 42 in the heart of London, where his acclaimed cuisine was complemented by stunning vistas from the 24th floor. Under his management, the restaurant was awarded various accolades, including BMW Best New Restaurant 2004, three AA rosettes and the all-important Michelin star, which he retained for eight years until his departure.
