Richard Hughes’ 40th anniversary gala
Guests, friends, family and customers gathered to celebrate 40 years to the day since Richard Hughes, chef director of The Assembly House in Norwich, started working in professional kitchens. In a career that has taken him from the pot wash at The Imperial Hotel in Great Yarmouth to Number 24 in Wymondham and The Lavender House in Brundall via Michelin-starred kitchens, EDP Norfolk Magazine columnist Richard gave the audience a potted history of life at the stove, a cookery demonstration and a three-course dinner that reflected his favourite dishes to make.
