Richard Corrigan

Irish chef Richard has opened four restaurants, two of which have gained a Michelin star. He’s also written two recipe books, cooked for the Queen and Barack Obama, and regularly makes appearances on radio and television. He’s notably won Great British Menu three times, as well as being a regular judge on the popular BBC series. Richard runs Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill off Piccadilly, Corrigan’s Mayfair and Daffodil Mulligan, as well as country house Virginia Park Lodge in County Cavan, Ireland.

A farmer’s son, Richard began his career as a teenager and has cooked all his life. He’s a vehement supporter of British and Irish produce and small independent suppliers. Richard’s chefs only use wild game and wild sustainable fish, and produce such as butter, cheese and charcuterie are primarily sourced from family-run, independent businesses in Britain and Ireland. Bread is made in the restaurant's bakeries (it’s also available to buy at Fortnum & Mason), and salmon is smoked on Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill rooftop. In short, everything, where possible, is made from scratch in-house.
