Aiden Byrne, chef patron of Manchester House, is to appear in the new BBC One television series ‘Yes Chef’ hosted by Sheree Murphy.
Airing this afternoon at 3.45pm, Aiden will set a series of culinary challenges for four home cooks, before selecting a winner.
The winner will then team up with Aiden in that week’s final, airing on Friday 16th September at 3.45pm, competing against professional chefs Theo Randall, Matt Gillan, Frances Atkins and their chosen home cook partners, in a challenge judged by three Michelin-starred chef Pierre Koffman.
Only one duo will reign supreme and claim the title of Yes Chef Champions. Each week, Yes Chef sees four new professional chefs in the kitchen, with the likes of Michael O’Hare, Stephen Terry, Atul Kochhar, Nathan Outlaw, and Paul Ainsworth also taking part.
Merseyside-born Byrne made his name as head chef at Adlards Restaurant in Norwich, during which time he became the youngest chef to ever receive a Michelin Star, aged just 22.
He went on to work at a number of Michelin-starred establishments, including The Oak Room and Orangery Restaurants at Danesfield House, Tom Aikens, Danesfield House Hotel and The Grill Room at The Dorchester.
In 2008, Byrne and his wife purchased the Church Green in Lymm, Cheshire, converting the local pub into ‘The British Grill’ and winning the AA restaurant of the year award in 2012. He opened Manchester House in 2013, embracing the opportunity to create the innovative, seasonal, modern British menus for which he has become renowned.
