Marcus’ interest in food began when he worked for his family’s fruit and vegetable business in the North West of England. Between 1991 and 1993, Marcus worked alongside Albert Roux at Le Gavroche, providing an ideal opportunity to perfect his French culinary skills. Working at Gordon Ramsay’s Aubergine restaurant in 1993, it was not long before Marcus and Gordon jointly opened L’Oranger, where Marcus was to achieve his first Michelin star. Following this, Marcus opened Pétrus, also gaining a Michelin star. In 2008, Pétrus was renamed Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley, and is now one of two restaurants owned by Marcus, along with his new venture The Gilbert Scott at The Renaissance Hotel, St. Pancras, opened in May 2011.
“Bonnet was the first cooker I worked with at Aubergine, with Gordon Ramsay, and as the years have gone by they have just got better and better. The key is to keep moving with the times, to keep innovating – which Bonnet has done.”
