Brian Turner is said to be one of Britains most well-known chefs having trained at
Simpsons in the Strand, The Savoy, The Beau Rivage in Lausanne and Claridges. In 1971
he opened the kitchens of The Capital Hotel with Richard Shepherd where they won a then
rare Michelin star. In 1986 he opened his own restaurant Turners in Walton Street, Chelsea.
After fifteen years of success he opened restaurants in Birmingham and Slough and in 2003
at The Millennium Hotel in Grosvenor Square, Mayfair. Now he has Turners in Butlins,
Brian Turner is the President of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts which he has combined
with a successful career as a TV personality. Having been on the first ever Ready Steady
Cook Show Turner served 14 and a half years on the very successful programme as well as
many appearances on This Morning, Saturday Kitchen, Out To Lunch and more recently his
own show A Taste of Britain on the BBC. In 2015 Turner recorded a new show also with
the BBC, My Life on a Plate.
In June 2002 in the Queens birthday honours list Turner was awarded a CBE for his
services to tourism and training in the catering industry. Since then Turner has been made
an Honorary Professor of The University of West London, a Fellow of the City and Guilds of
London Institute as well as receiving Honorary Doctorates of Science at Leeds Metropolitan
and Sheffield Hallam Universities. Turner has received an Honorary Apprenticeship Award
which he feels complements his work with the Adopt a School scheme and the Future chef
competition which both encourage young people to come into the catering industry.

serving the four courses comprising of Beetroot and citrus marinated salmon with an apple
and radish salad, Roast crown of chicken with broad beans, carrots and a braised pearl
