Gary Rhodes’ legendary dedication to his craft and relentless pursuit of perfection has placed him firmly at the forefront of today’s culinary world.
Chef, restaurateur, celebrity and author of 18 cookery books, his distinguished career, tireless attention to detail and unique mastery of the ‘Great British Classics’ truly sets him apart. A history of stunning restaurants has won him a constellation of Michelin stars and he is consistently revered by his peers as truly ‘The Chef’s Chef’.
Well-known as an ambassador for British cuisine, Gary has achieved what no other chef has previously managed to do: he has re-introduced the nation to its rich gastronomic heritage and uncovered a culinary culture to rival that of any other country in the world.
29 years after graduating from Thanet Technical College in Kent, Gary is an extremely busy man. The start of 2005 saw his undisputedly successful London restaurant, Rhodes Twenty Four, with spectacular views over the City from Tower 42, winning its first Michelin Star.
The restaurant has received rave reviews since its opening in 2003 and has seen its tables booked up for months. This is Gary’s fifth Michelin star, an achievement no other Chef can claim to have. Rhodes Twenty Four is one of only 3 restaurants in London with this accolade. In addition to Rhodes Twenty Four, Gary opened Rhodes W1, a new restaurant in the newly refurbished Cumberland Hotel in Park Lane. He has also launched ‘Arcadian Rhodes’ aboard the new P&O Superliner, Arcadia and ‘Oriana Rhodes’ aboard the cruise liner Oriana. 2006 found Gary with a new restaurant venture in Dublin, Ireland, with the launch of his 250 seater brasserie, Rhodes D7.
Gary opened his first overseas restaurant several years ago, premiering in the five-star Calabash Hotel on the beautiful ‘spice island’ of Grenada.
2007 saw Gary with many exciting projects, starting with the launch of his new Rhodes W1 Fine Dining restaurant at The Cumberland hotel in May and Rhodes Mezzanine at The Grosvenor House Hotel, Dubai, in September. Rhodes W1 was awarded a Michelin star in 2008.
