Marco Pierre White passes on knowledge through BBC Maestro
Written by Bridgwater Mercury on November 21, 2020
MANY of us are cooking at home more than ever before during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Now you have the chance to pick up some tips from one of the UK’s best known chefs.
Marco Pierre White – who has a restaurant in Bridgwater – is one of the main draws of a new BBC e-learning service that offers unique access to the minds of some of the world’s greatest creative talents.
Fans of the famous chef, whose Somerset restaurant is located at the Mecure Hotel, Eastover, can enjoy more than 30 online lessons where he reveals some of the skills that made him the first British and youngest chef (at the time) to attain three Michelin stars
Called BBC Maestro, and in partnership with BBC Studios, the digital tutorials will allow aspiring cooks to indulge in their passion for food from the comfort of their own home during the current lockdown.
Damian Kaye, restaurant general manager, said: “At a time when the country is in lockdown, this is a great way for people to learn some new skills from arguably the UK’s best ever and most influential chef, so it’s great to see Marco pass on his knowledge.
“Marco often talks about how going out for a meal provides a little bit of escapism so, despite us not being able to go out and eat, cooking a delicious meal for loved ones or even yourself is a great way for aspiring cooks to take their minds off the current situation.”
Pierre White added: “It’s not about recipes. This is about food. The understanding of food.
“How to take something as simple as a potato and take it somewhere it’s never been before.
“It’s impossible to cook three-star food at home without a team, but what I can do is impart that three-star understanding and show people how to introduce it into cooking at home.”
