Illustrious Irish chef, Richard Corrigan is a veteran of the culinary trade and at the helm of the Slow Food Movement. He has opened numerous restaurants, gained Michelin stars, is the author of two recipe books, cooked for the Queen and regularly makes appearances on radio and television; notably winning Great British Menu three times. Richard runs Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill off Piccadilly, Corrigan’s Mayfair, and Bentley’s Sea Grill at the internationally renowned Harrods Food Hall in Knightsbridge. 2015 will reveal the launch of an additional country lodge in Ireland.
Richard has cooked all his life and he is a vehement supporter of British and Irish produce and small independent suppliers. Richard’s chefs only use wild game, wild sustainable fish, and produce such as butter, cheese and charcuterie is sourced from mostly from family run independent businesses in the Britain and Ireland. Bread is made in the restaurant’s bakeries and salmon is smoked on Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill rooftop; in short everything where possible is made from scratch, in-house. Keen to give his quality suppliers and others the national presence they deserve, Richard became an ambassador for the Slow Food Movement, and is also a founding member of the Slow Food UK Chef Alliance and Chef Spokesperson for the project.
In 2009 Richard went on to open Corrigan’s Mayfair. Within three months of opening Corrigan’s Mayfair was awarded London Restaurant of the Year by the Evening Standard and three AA Rosettes. Later that year the restaurant won ‘AA London Restaurant of the Year’ and gained one of the highest new entries in the National Restaurant Awards at number five.
