Tommy Is A Michelin Star Chef

After his parents bought a pub for the B&B business, he started to help out in the restaurant. He and his brother James were given the responsibility of running it.

Not with an ounce of experience in running a business, both brothers tried to host parties and invite his mates over to get drunk. Though the pub was going fine, it was never above it.

That was when the brothers thought it was time to do something different with the pub. So, they changed the pub to the destination restaurant. 

Tommy worked for several Michelin-starred restaurants, such as Le Manor aux Quat'Saisons, to get work experience for his family restaurant.

Later Adam Jackson was hired as the head chef for their business and Tommy learned the ropes of professional cooking under him.

In 2011, Adam won the first Michelin Star for the restaurant. After staying there till 2013, he left Tommy's responsibility as head chef.

After his mentor got away, he continued to cook in his style, which helped him to retain the Michelin Star of the restaurant. This also led him to be the youngest Michelin Star Chef in the UK. 

Feeling wanting to do something new in the restaurant's cooking style, he changed the menu with something unique of his own. 

Even with the risk of losing the reputation, he continued with his guts and came out with success. He continued to retain the star of the restaurant with his unique style of food.

Slowly, he and his family started to grow food for their restaurant. In 2018, he published his debut cookbook Root, which was published by The Orion Publishing.  He won the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in the Chef category in the UK in the same year.

The same year he and his partner Matthew Lockwood opened a second restaurant, Roots, in the center of York.

Along with his brother James, Tommy has brought a new revolution of drinking wine from a wine can rather than a wine bottle. The review from the wine taster has quite a positive outlook on this new product.
