Top chef will remain in county for next project
A CHEF who helped put Ludlow on the culinary map but moved on after the Food Festival has revealed his next move.
Will Holland, who earned a Michelin star before the age of 30, has secured a property in Bridgnorth.
He was chef patron at La Becasse in Ludlow before leaving in September.
Will plans to carry out extensive refurbishments and will transform the property before launching his restaurant.
“I have formed my own company and I am extremely pleased that my offer on a property in Bridgnorth has been accepted,” said Will.
“The restaurant will have my name above the door and we plan to open in spring 2014. This is a very exciting time for me and all involved in this project.”
Will Holland came to prominence after securing a Michelin star for La Bécasse and was at the time one of the youngest chefs in the country to hold the accolade.
“I am delighted to be remaining in the county of Shropshire, where I have lived for the past seven years. I will be able to continue to build on the relationships I have with local food producers, farmers and suppliers,” he added.
Chef Will Holland has featured regularly on James Martin’s Saturday Kitchen Live programme. He became the Midland’s Regional Champion on BBC TV’s Great British Menu and beat The Hairy Bikers in a televised food challenge for their Food Tour of Great Britain programme.
The Good Food Guide predicted Chef Will Holland would be one of the “10 most influential chefs of the decade”.
