A WESTON man has risen to become head chef at an eatery run by one of the country’s most famous chefs.

Neil Wrigley has been announced as head chef at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill, at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House.

The 27-year-old, of Griffin Road, Weston Village, has worked at the Congresbury eatery for six years, and has worked his way up from apprentice to top dog in the four star hotel’s restaurant.

He said: “My passion has always been for food and cooking so it’s a huge honour for me to now be head chef at such a fantastic restaurant and to be working under a culinary legend like Marco Pierre White.”
