The Marco Pierre White Group
After leaving Allerton High School in Leeds without any qualifications, White decided to train as a chef.
He began his training in the kitchen at the Hotel St George in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and later at the Box Tree in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. Arriving in London as a 16-year-old with GBP7.36, a box of books and a bag of clothes" he began his classical training as a commis under Albert Roux and Michel Roux at Le Gavroche, a period that would lead Albert to describe him as "my little bunny".
At 24, Marco became Head Chef and joint owner of Harveys with a kitchen staff that included the young Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal.
He was awarded his third Michelin star at the age of 33 - the first British and youngest chef ever to achieve this.
Two of Garden Party Hire's Chefs have had the pleasure and honour to meet & feed Marco Pierre White - a true Gentleman.
