I met Valentine Warner at a dinner organised by The Moveable Restaurant. Fifty of the poshest people you will ever meet sat in the same room.(Oh I have a whole shtick about class/money and food in this country but that’s for another post.) Not surprising I guess, as the chefs normally cook for The River Café, one of the most celebrated restaurants in London.
“What do you do then?”.
He mumbled something about food and the BBC. A few weeks later I was surfing the net and his picture came up. Wow, I thought, he wasn’t kidding about TV.
