Jeremy Lee is described on the Quo Vadis restaurant website as: ‘A tall Scottish cook who fills the boxes on the menu daily with his favourite things, a great many of which are inspired by many a fine cook book and chefs such as Simon Hopkinson and Alastair Little, who honed his cooking while working alongside them learning his craft. He is generally very noisy and is endlessly apologising for getting the lyrics wrong in show tunes.’
Jeremy is one of the UK’s most admired chefs. He began his career working for Simon Hopkinson, before joining Terence Conran as head chef of The Blueprint Café. Very much the chef’s chef, he is described by restaurant critic Jay Rayner as 'one of those rare phenomena in the London food world: a chap everyone agrees is a good thing. Partly that is because he is sharp, funny, learned, engaged and the kind of bloke you always want in the room, but mostly it's because he has such damn good taste'.
