Marcus at Home

We are thrilled to announce that Marcus Wareing's 6th cookbook, Marcus at Home, is now available to order.

Shifting the focus away from Marcus, the Michelin starred chef and MasterChef: The Professionals judge, Marcus at Home instead showcase​s​ the food he loves to cook for his friends and family in the comfort of his own home. Chapters range from Midweek and Weekend, through to Entertaining and Baking. These are recipes that will quickly become established favourites around your own kitchen table.


On 5th May, students of Edge Hotel School are hosting a fundraiser for Children of the Mountain, a charity which encourages girls in rural Nepal into education. The dinner will be celebrating the success of women in the industry and Tredwell's head chef, Chantelle Nicholson, has been hand-picked to lead the evening's culinary experience alongside Lisa Allen and Madalene Bonvini-Hamel.

"Every day I felt the pressure of having to deliver because I had Wareing, who is at that level, watching the monitor" - Bradley Cooper.

February saw the DVD and iTunes release of Burnt starring Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Emma Thompson & Uma Thurman. It tells the story of Adam Jones, an American head chef on the trail of landing his own kitchen in London and that elusive third Michelin star. Marcus Wareing developed the script with the film's screenwriters and as Chef Consultant during filming, was responsible for teaching Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller how to cook and convincingly play professional chefs on screen.
