The Chef

 

Marcus Wareing

With a father who was a fruit and vegetable merchant and a brother working as a chef, Marcus Wareing, who was raised in the north west of England, has always been surrounded by food in one way or another. Given his status as one of the most high-profile, successful chefs working in Britain today it seems somewhat surprising that he was initially more interested in following in his father’s footsteps than those of his brother. However, seeing no future in the family business, his father encouraged Marcus to pursue a different career and his brother suggested he undertake a catering course at Southport College.

From being – by his own admission – a “mediocre school student” Marcus Wareing suddenly found himself top of his class, catching the eye of more than one of his tutors as being a naturally gifted chef. After shining in a local catering competition, it wasn’t long before the ambitious young Marcus Wareing was recommended for a position at the Savoy, working in a kitchen with over 100 other chefs.
