Angela Hartnett

Angela Hartnett, MBE, is one of the UK’s most loved chefs and restaurateurs, known for her sophisticated yet simple, Italy-inspired cooking.

Born in Britain, her passion for good, honest food and the best ingredients was instilled in her by her Italian grandmother and mother.

After starting out in the kitchens at Aubergine, Zafferano, L’Oranger and Petrus, Angela became head chef at Petrus within seven short months, helping the restaurant to achieve a Michelin star. She went on to launch restaurants in Scotland, Dubai and London, with Gordon Ramsay.

In 2007 Angela was awarded an MBE for services to the hospitality industry, and the following year she opened her own restaurant, Murano in Mayfair which was awarded a Michelin star. In 2013 she opened the similarly championed Café Murano, a brassier little sister to Murano, which continues to grow around London.
