Congratulations to chef Michael Thomas on his successful validation dinner. His validation took place on the 25th of August in Lancashire. The role of the jury members was to try the private chef dining experience and evaluate the menu prepared by the chef.
Michael Thomas has been a chef for over 15 years in which time he has worked his way through the rankings to become head chef at various locations. Over the last few years he has developed a passion for private dining and outside catering. Michael has also owned his own restaurant which was ranked highly in the area. He is able to do food for any occasion from corporate events to weddings and special tasting menus for 2 to dinner parties for 30. One of his favourite things is creating new dishes and making bespoke food for customers. He enjoys using fresh ingredients and chooses local where possible. He likes to add a personal touch, turning something classic into his own.
