Richard Stuart of the Garrick Club (now with The Mardan Palace in Turkey) Trained with Marc Meneau at L’Espérance

I am currently working as executive chef at the Mardan Palace in Antalya, in Turkey, which opened in 2008.

Winning the Roux Scholarship gave me a path & a goal to follow after my experience with 3 Michelin star chef Marc Meneau at L'esperance.

For me the most important aspect of my experience in France was the quality of the products. I learnt to respect the product & it in turn it respected me. This for me as a chef is the most valuable asset I have received from winning the Roux Scholarship which is thoroughly embedded in me. 

I studied at Thanet Technical College in Kent for three years and then had an apprenticeship at the Garrick Club in London, where I gained a sound training in classical cuisine from my chef Steven Lattimer.  This gave me confidence in my own ability as a young British chef knowing that I too could work at the highest level. I went onto to work for Marco Pierre White where I was part of the brigade that achieved the 3 Michelin star accolade.
