About Steven Doherty:
Steven Doherty’s cookery career began as an 18-year-old apprentice at the Savoy in 1976, following which he began at Le Gavroche in 1978, working his way up the ranks, before a 2-year stage to the kitchens of the late Alain Chapel (considered to be the Three-Michelin Star’s chefs ‘Chef) Restaurant in Mionnay, just outside Lyon.
He returned to London in 1982 to restaurant Le Gavroche, which won its Three-Michelin Star status in 1981 and in 1985 Steven became the first ever British person to become Head Chef of a Three-Michelin Star establishment. For the next 5 years, until he left in 1990, Le Gavroche won every major European food accolade and maintained its three-star status.
When he left the kitchen at Le Gavroche, Steven then took up the position as Group Executive Chef for Roux Restaurants Limited and was responsible for the existing food operations in 3 restaurants and 10 food and beverage contracts, which included the likes of Bafta, Kleinwort Benson, Rothschilds, Bank Paribas and Credit Lyonnais.
In 1991 Steven became only the 5th chef to achieve the Master of Culinary Arts award, of which there are only 20 in the country to date.
Following a move to the Lake District, with his wife Marjorie, Steven ran award winning The Brown Horse at Winster before taking to the helm at The Punch Bowl Inn at Crosthwaite, where again, his expertise and passion helped a number of awards flood in.
Today, Steven and Marjorie have set up and now run the new cafe within the flagship Lakeland store in Windermere. Steven is still called upon throughout the year to judge in various competitions and to speak at chefs conferences.
