Not content with his excellent James Martin Manchester restaurant at Manchester 235 casino, celebrity TV chef James Martin has announced he is set to roll out his James Martin Kitchen concept at Stansted Airport with a second branch at Piccadilly Station. Focusing on fresh and locally sourced ingredients with its roots firmly in the farms of Britain, the "premium bakery" offers fresh farm ingredients and the highest quality baking, making it ideal for passengers who want to eat in or to grab and go. ~ 3 November 2016

Adam Reid at The French Adam Reid at The French

3 Star Michelin Chef Simon Rogan has ended his contract as Chef Patron at The Midland Hotel’s two restaurants, the 4 AA Rosette The French by Simon Rogan and 2 AA Rosette Mr Cooper’s House & Garden.

Fans of the two restaurants, riding high in our Top 10 Best Restaurants in Manchester list, needn’t worry as his two protégés will take the reigns; rising star Adam Reid will retain the head chef position at The French, while Robert Taylor retains the top job at Mr Cooper’s.

The Great British Menu 2016 winning Adam Reid has been involved with The French since it reopened in 2013, helping it retain its Pride Of Manchester Award winning title of "Best Restaurant in Manchester" ever since, whilst Robert Taylor took over Mr Cooper’s after recently joining from Aiden Byrne’s Manchester House restaurant.

Adam commented: “This is a huge opportunity for me to showcase my own cooking style, which has been developing over the past decade. I want to make Manchester proud and ensure that The French will continue to evolve and impress its local and national customers.”

The restaurant will be re-named as ‘Adam Reid at The French’ from 1st November 2016 and re-positioned to reflect Adam’s vision and style in January 2017.

Simon Rogan added: “Our work with The Midland has been a great opportunity and we’ve built something very special with The French and Mr Cooper’s. It’s now time to concentrate our efforts on developing and growing our businesses in Cartmel with L’Enclume and Rogan & Co. as well as ensuring that Fera at Claridge’s continues to be operated to our high standards.” ~ 1 November 2016

Mancunian chef Adam Reid has triumphed in the final of the BBC’s Great British Menu programme. The Head Chef of the 4 AA Rosette The French at The Midland Hotel won the honour of cooking the dessert course at the final banquet for the television show.

Adam’s ‘Golden Empire’ dessert of stewed Empire Apple with hazelnut crumble, meadowsweet custard and golden candy apples, will be served at The Great Britons’ Banquet at the House of Commons Members’ Dining Room. An elevated reimagining of traditional apple crumble, the delicate dessert is made by blowing an apple shape out of gold sugar and filling it with spiced Empire apples, meadowsweet flavoured custard and a crumble mix made with oats, hazelnuts and Demerara sugar. It's then surrounded with a granita made from Granny Smith apple juice frozen in liquid nitrogen.

Adam said: “It's amazing to actually gain a place at the banquet and cook for all the honoured guests. The competition was incredibly tough but I feel really honoured to cook with the other guys at the banquet and see my dish in such an esteemed environment.”

You can recreate the theatrical and culinary magic of The Great British Menu by tasting Adam Reid’s ‘Great British Lunch’, which includes all four of the dishes he created for the TV series. Available at The French, Wednesday to Saturday from 12.00 to 13.30 until Saturday 17th December 2016, priced at £75 per person. ~ 28 October 2016
