Meet the Author

Tony Allan is second only to Terence Conran as Britain’s wealthiest restaurateur. He is worth an estimated £85 million, and rising all the time. His meteoric rise from fishmonger to the elite of British entrepreneurs speaks volumes for his dedication and skill as a chef, but also his uncanny ability as a businessman to spot an opportunity and maximize it to its fullest potential. He starred in the BBC2 primetime cookery show Tony & Giorgio, with his best pal Giorgio Locatelli, himself owner of the premier London eatery Lomando Locatelli.
