Will post a full report in the new year, but according to my last year predictions he should be loooosing stars this year.

In theory he already has because all his european and american restaurants have been franchised out and he does not control them so he has lost stars !!

The 2009 Michelin Guide to Great Britain & Ireland includes four new two-Michelin-star restaurants, 26 additional one-Michelin-star restaurants but no new three-star restaurants.

Among the new two-stars is Claude and Claire Bosi’s Hibiscus restaurant which relocated from Shropshire to London in 2007.

It is joined by two other London restaurants, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester. (The new additions double the number of two-star establishments in the capital city.)

The fourth restaurant to be recognised in 2009 at this level is the Dining Room at Whatley Manor in Wiltshire, which is headed up by executive chef Martin Burge.

The 26 new one-Michelin-star establishments are spread across the country, but London, again, has a strong showing, acquiring eight additional star holders

Among them is one of the industry’s most renowned restaurants, St John Bar and Restaurant in the city’s Smithfield area, opened by chef-proprietor Fergus Henderson in an old smokehouse in 1994. The restaurant is famous for its offal dishes and “nose-to-tail” menus.

Two French chefs who have recently opened restaurants in London are also among the recipients of one-star - Jean-Christophe Ansanay-Alex for his Ambassade de l’Ille in Kensington, and Hélène Darroze at the Connaught. Darroze replaced UK chef Angela Hartnett at the London hotel and Hartnett, too, has been awarded a star for her new Mayfair restaurant, Murano.

In the London suburbs, Kent restaurant, Chapter One, has regained its star while in the West End the sister eatery of city’s the renowned Pied à Terre, L’Autre Pied, and up-market Chinese restaurant, Kai, in Mayfair, are numbered among the new crop of one-stars.

Elsewhere in England, one-star newcomers include the new restaurants of several chefs who have held the accolade at previous establishments: Kevin Mangeolles at the Neptune in Hunstanton, Norfolk; Robert Thompson at the Hambrough on the Isle of Wight, Glynn Purnell (one of the stars of last year’s Great British Menu) at Purnell’s in Birmingham and Michael Wignall at the Latymer restaurant at Surrey’s Pennyhill Park.

Former Latymer head chef, Marc Wilkinson, tipped for recognition for some years by the guide, has also achieved a star at his restaurant, Fraiche, in the Wirral.
Commenting on this year’s selection, the guide’s editor, Derek Bulmer said: “We have never awarded so many stars in a single year before. These new stars have been awarded to a host of establishments from gastro pubs and family-run locals, to country hotels and fashionable London restaurants.

The guide, often referred to colloquially as the Red Guide, is regarded by chefs and restaurateurs as the premier listing for their industry and its star accolades are eagerly sought.

Hi Peter

I came across an article yesterday, but for the life of me cannot find it now.

Basically it was an article about a new chef which they were plugging as the new Gordon Ramsay. If this guy can produce the goods and get a good PR company behind him then Ramsay will fall. Its not a question of will it happen but When will it happen.

Dont get me wrong, I like Ramsay as a Chef, passionate, strong and he can produce but the telly thing is pissing everyone off now. Its the same for Heston Blumenthal, I have The Fat Duck cookbook, crazy stuff but the guy is a great Chef, but his telly programs just piss me off.... go figure

Have a good one !!

being a chef is about being passionate and strong. no one wants to be a chef for the money, we are chefs because its what we love to do!!!! TV is not a chefs place, and the amount of TV gordon does, its too much. i understand your feelings but chefs are chefs because its what we love, not to be rich.
