Mike Robinson discovered his passion for homely French cuisine when mountain-climbing in the French Alps as a student.
Martin Blunos, a blond haired, walrus-moustached Baltic giant of a man, has held onto two Michelin stars for more than fifteen years.
Born to Latvian parents in Britain, Martin grew up in Somerset. His Latvian heritage has influenced Martin's cooking, and his first restaurant Lettonie in Bristol is a testament to this.
A television career has followed and Martin makes regular appearances on UKTV Food programmes such as Market Kitchen. He also made his own series Tasting Times with Martin Blunos.
Martin demonstrates his cooking at media events and food fares, and was chosen to cook for The Queen in her Jubilee year.
