Started cooking at the age of 8 with his Father (also a chef) in Kent.
He has worked under Peter Kronberg, Gary Rhodes, Eric Charvot, Rick Stein and Paul Ripley.
Describes his food style as clean, simple, classic with modern techniques. Passionate about British cuisine & the best local produce. “Above all my food is accessible to all comers and avoids gimmicks and pretentions.”
Very driven & wants his staff to love food like he does and doesn’t want to create a pretentious kitchen. Has a high regard for the likes of Heston (he knows him fairly well and Heston’s parents eat in Nathan’s restaurant), John Campbell (who he trained with) and also Rick Stein and Gary Rhodes (both of who he worked with). Michelin star and 8/10 in Good Food Guide.
Nathan creates a fun but productive environment in his kitchen, with great banter amongst his chefs. He says his last meal on Earth would be his Mum’s Told in the Hole and trifle with hundreds and thousands for dessert!
Nathan’s Dad is a chef and since he was young he wanted to go into the business too. He always cooked with both his Mum and Dad. His Dad didn’t want to make it easy for him though and made sure he did lots of work experience in holidays to understand how the job worked, so that Nathan would not be shocked by the realities of the industry.
Nathan was an ambitious and hard working trainee. He used to have to leave the house at 5.30 to get the 3 trains that took him to catering college and has always pushed himself. He finished his two year course on a Friday and by the Monday was in his first job at the Intercontinental Hotel, on Hyde Park Corner. He then worked very briefly for Gary Rhodes before walking out (something he really regrets). He then worked for Eric Chavot at The Capital in Knightsbridge who apparently was tougher than Gordon Ramsay.
It was Rick Stein’s restaurant that brought Nathan to Cornwall. He was the youngest sous chef working there at 21. He still felt he had more to learn though and went to work for John Campbell at Lords of the Manor restaurant in the Cotswolds and from there he moved back to Cornwall to open his first restaurant ‘The Black Pig’ in Cornwall. This was a small restaurant, in not the best of locations, but he still was spotted by the Michelin team and got his first star. The business closed due to falling out with his partner and he went to work for a luxury B&B, which again he got Michelin star for. He was then offered an opportunity to move to London
He opened Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in February 2007. He doesn’t own the restaurant but has complete control over the kitchen and front of house Restaurant Nathan Outlaw has 1 Michelin star with rising 2 star status.... Read more.
Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
