My latest Little London Whispers with … is with Marcus Wareing. Marcus is one of Britain’s most respected and talented chefs.

He has three restaurants in London; Marcus at The Berkeley, The Gilbert Scott at The Renaissance St Pancras Hotel and Tredwells in Covent Garden. He also happens to have George’s Bar at The Gilbert Scott. A bar so architecturally beautiful, you need to remind yourself to order a drink… just saying!

Currently you will find Marcus on your British television screens in Masterchef, The Professionals. It is all heating up as we go into semi-final week, so you are an avid watcher like me, this is the time to acquire another skill for your Christmas cooking.

Enjoy my Little Whispers with Marcus. We caught up just before his restaurants re-opened, including Marcus at The Berkeley, his Michelin-starred restaurant.

I talked to him about surviving lockdown, what he loves in London and a thing or two about guilty pleasures… What a lovely and gracious man he was.
