London based food writer completes review of all UK Michelin Star Restaurants on 5 year mission to
Richard Bagnold, known online as Major Foodie, has completed a gastronomic adventure to review every Michelin Star Restaurant in the UK.
Chris Onstad, writer of the webcomic Achewood and the writer of The Achewood Cookbook, expressed an abhorrence for the term. Onstad said “There are such a large number of words that as of now depict the idea of individuals who like sustenance, or appreciate cooking, or appreciate thinking about cooking..” Ferdman claims that individuals who connect themselves with being a “foodie” are in certainty separating them from the gathering they wish to be related with. The creator at that point expresses that there is nothing amiss with having an enthusiasm for nourishment, in certainty this famous pattern is helping the sustenance development flourish. Ferdman’s fundamental contention is that since the word is so generally utilized, its importance has turned out to be universal and some significance is lost upon the need to always report the amount somebody gets a kick out of the chance to eat. Foodies are an unmistakable specialist gathering. Regular foodie interests and exercises incorporate the sustenance business, wineries and wine sampling, bottling works and brew testing, nourishment science, following eatery openings and closings and incidentally reopening, sustenance dispersion, sustenance prevailing fashions, wellbeing and nourishment, cooking classes, culinary tourism, and eatery administration. A foodie may build up a specific enthusiasm for a particular thing, for example, the best egg cream or burrito.
The 5-year Michelin mission has seen Bagnold travel the length and breadth of the UK, taking extraordinary measures to sample sensational food that starred restaurants are renowned for. His passion has seen him drive through the night to get to reservations in Scotland and schedule weekends to review 3 different restaurants in the same region – all to test his theory that fine dining can be bought on a budget.
Bagnold decided to eat and review every Michelin star restaurant in the UK to prove that he could sample the best food on offer at an affordable price and be no more expensive than a meal at a restaurant chain. He discovered how to hack the fine dining system to make even the most elite restaurants affordable.
“If you see a 3-course set menu at a Michelin starred restaurant, it’s very likely you are going to get much more at no extra cost. Restaurants serve complimentary courses to demonstrate gastronomic flair – even the speciality bread is likely to be hand-made.” said Bagnold.
“Top restaurants have quiet periods and you can take advantage of set price menus over lunch, before 6pm and in some cases after 10pm. The Dorchester, one of the UK’s most exclusive3 star restaurants offers 3 courses, 2 glasses of wine plus coffee and ½ bottle of water for an incredible £65 at lunch” said Bagnold.
