Richard Corrigan

Our latest guest on Grilling is one of the most charismatic chefs in the business. Richard Corrigan has led quite the life - and has plenty of amazing stories to show for it. Here he tells Simon about selling fags to his pals as a schoolboy, the sneaky way he guaranteed a great review from formidable food critic Fay Maschler, his love of George Orwell and nightly scuffles with drug dealers outside his first restaurant. Richard is great value - though ready yourself for some colourful language!
