Paul Merrett is the presenter of ‘Ever Wondered About Food’. Paul also co-presented a ten-part series called ‘The Best’ which aired in 2002 accompanied by a book of the same name.
Paul trained under Gary Rhodes at The Greenhouse in Mayfair, London, following his apprenticeship at The Ritz and three years working with chef Peter Kromberg at Le Soufflé. He then moved to The Terrace Restaurant at the Meridien Hotel, in Piccadilly Circus, where he established a reputation for British cuisine with an Asian twist.
In October 1997, Paul took over the kitchens at Interlude in Charlotte Street, London W1, where his food continued to earn rave reviews. Ironically, after the restaurant was bought by investors and then shut, Paul was awarded his first Michelin star for the restaurant that was no longer there! Paul then returned to The Greenhouse where he was head chef and had been awarded a Michelin star but he left to open a less formal restaurant, The Farm in Fulham, London. Paul left The Farm in 2005 and is currently working on his second book.
Paul appeared on ‘Light Lunch’ (UK Channel 4) several times as well as Superchefs on the Carlton Food Network. He has also appeared as a regular presenter doing features for ‘Fresh Food’, and has appeared as Guest Chef of the Week for Food Network Daily on the Carlton Food Network and co-presenter on ‘Good Food Live’. Paul contributes regularly to Olive magazine.
Married, with two children, Paul lives in London.
