Angela Hartnett became chef-patron at London's Connaught Hotel in October 2002 after training at Gordon Ramsay's restaurants Fleur, Petrus and Amaryllis, followed by a stint at Verre in Dubai. She appeared alongside Gordon on ITV's Hell's Kitchen in 2004. Angela has rapidly established herself as one of the most high-profile women in international catering. Her individual style of cooking is achieved 'through combining great Mediterranean cuisine with a modern European influence'. Angela's restaurant MENU at the Connaught was awarded a Michelin star in 2004. She opened her first US restaurant in Miami in 2007 and filmed her first television series for the BBC in the same year.
