Former Data Manager, Simon started cooking when he could ‘reach the top of an oven’. His passion began when, at eight years old, he won a competition to be anything for a day and he chose to be a chef. Thirty years later Simon’s MasterChef win saw him fulfilling a dream he has had since he was young.
His areas of passion include fine dining, the art of plating, and teaching. His debut cookbook At Home with Simon Wood – Fine Dining Made Simple launched earlier this year.
2017 saw Simon opening his first restaurant in Manchester, bringing his unique culinary style along with his handpicked team to the heart of the City. Chester is his second restaurant and like Manchester will be dominated by the open theatre kitchen, which includes a Josper oven, and will feature a chef’s table in addition to a 12-seater private dining room.
