Chef finds fame ‘un­com­fort­able’

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS - TV chef Tom Ker­ridge

Tom Ker­ridge has said he is not com­fort­able with fame, and finds it un­usual that fans want self­ies with him.

The celebrity chef and TV pre­sen­ter, 45, whose restau­rant The Hand and Flow­ers was the first pub ever to be awarded two Miche­lin stars, has carved out a ca­reer as a reg­u­lar on TV pro­grammes in­clud­ing Great Bri­tish Menu and Satur­day Kitchen.

“I find it weird that when I walk into a room there’s a good chance at least one in 10 of the peo­ple in it will know who I am. But I won’t know who they are.

“But at least I’m known for cook­ing.

“Ac­tors are fa­mous for the parts they’ve played, not for who they re­ally are.”
