The rubber-tyre men may have had a fit when MPW ditched his three stars, writes our critic, but Marco’s is still rolling along merrily

Much has been written about Marco Pierre White down the years, but did you know that his favourite off-duty food is fish ‘n’ chips? I discovered this when Marco began heading the judging panel of The Restaurant TV show, on which I’ve been a guest judge a number of times.

There’s a lot of posturing and ‘being Marco’, but that’s all just part of the game for the original ‘angry young chef’ of Hell’s Kitchen fame, who, aged 32 in 1994, was the first British chef to be awarded three Michelin stars. However, this son of Leeds loves to slip off for a ‘one ‘n’ one’ at his favourite Dublin chipper, or for a day’s fishing.
