The Chef

 

Steven Smith

While many chefs unashamedly pilfer ideas from each other, Smith says he is keen to pave his own path (“many chefs in the North West have tried to be the next Nigel Haworth or Paul Heathcote and have failed”). So far his quest for originality has proved unremittingly successful; garnering a top 50 rating in the Good Food Guide for his Ribble Valley restaurant The Freemasons at Wiswell.

After training at Blackburn College, Smith worked at many of the region’s best restaurants before opening Freemasons in 2009 – immediately drawing praise from customers for his open and energetic management style. The restaurant is now regarded as one of the North West’s best ever restaurants and Smith as one of its brightest culinary talents.
