Chris Wheeler, Executive Chef, Stoke Park

Chris Wheeler, Stoke Park’s award winning Executive Chef will make his Great British Menu debut when the BBC 2 show hits our screens on Monday 29th August competing in the South West region!

The South West region week will start airing on Monday 5th September and Chris will be competing against Chefs Josh Eggleton and Jude Kereama.

Originally from Swanage in Dorset, Chris’ passion, enthusiasm and culinary excellence was spotted and nurtured from a young age by celebrated Chef Jean Christophe-Novelli. Chris worked alongside Novelli and was his right-hand man for ten years, where he learned a great deal and gained even more experience and developed his passion for food.

Chris joined Stoke Park in 2003 and has been building up the culinary reputation since, achieving 3 AA Rosettes for the fine-dining restaurant, Humphry’s as well as overseeing the entire culinary operation.

Chris is a familiar face on our screens having appeared on Hell’s Kitchen 2, Chefs Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is, Sunday Brunch and Saturday Kitchen, but this is the first time he will be going head-to-head with other leading chefs during a tense competition to bake the ultimate banquet.

' I'm really looking forward to being a part of this series of Great British Menu- it is such honour to be a part of the show and having the chance to come up with some fabulously creative ideas.' commented Chris Wheeler.

This year the series is making history by being the first TV show to be filmed in the Palace of Westminster.

And the winner will be given the prestigious prize of cooking at the banquet in honour of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II's 'Great Britons.'
