Author Biography

John Burton Race was born in Singapore in 1957, the son of a British diplomat, and he spent his formative years travelling the globe, experiencing a multitude of cuisines. His family settled in Hampshire and his journey to create the most beautiful food began then, and encompassed sous chef at Les Manoir Quat' Saisons, Oxford and head chef and manager of Le Petit Blanc, Oxford. In 1986, John opened a restaurant of his own - L'Ortolan, in Berkshire, gaining and maintaining two Michelin stars from 1986 until 2000. From 2000 until 2003 he ran The Landmark restaurant, in London's Landmark Hotel, and reclaimed not one, but two Michelin stars within the first year of trading.
