About the Author
Born in Bury, Lancashire, Simon Hopkinson left school at 17 to begin a career as a chef. He opened his first restaurant, the Shed, near Fishguard, just before his 21st birthday. In 1983 he launched himself on the London restaurant scene, becoming chef at Hilaire in the Old Brompton Road. He swiftly found himself one of the most acclaimed young chefs in the business and his friendship with Terence Conran led to the opening of Bibendum in the restored Michelin building in 1987.
He retired as a full-time chef in 1995 to concentrate more on writing. As well as
Roast Chicken and Other Stories and
Second Helpings of Roast Chicken, his books include
Gammon & Spinach,
The Prawn Cocktail Years (written jointly with Lindsey Bareham),
Week In, Week Out and
The Vegetarian Option. The Good Cook won the Food and Drink Book of the Year in 2011 and he has also won the André Simon award, and the Glenfiddich Award three times. Simon's new tv series,
Simon Hopkinson Cooks, will be broadcast on More 4 in June 2013.
