Richard Corrigan was brought up on a farm in County Meath, Ireland. After leaving Irish shores to pursue his dream of becoming a chef, Richard spent four years cooking in the Netherlands before progressing to become head chef of Mulligan's in Mayfair.
His first Michelin star was awarded at Stephen Bull's Fulham Road restaurant in 1994, prior to launching the acclaimed Michelin-starred Lindsay House in Soho in 1997. Following his success at reviving the famous Bentley's Seafood Bar & Grill in London (www.bentleys.org, 0207 734 4756), Richard recently opened an Irish Bentley's (www.bentleysdublin.com, 00 353 1 638 3939) based in Dublin to equal praise. Corrigan's Mayfair (www.corrigansmayfair.com, 0207 499 9943) opened its doors in November 2008 to wide acclaim. The restaurant was awarded London Restaurant of the Year 2008/2009 by the Evening Standard and awarded 3 AA Rosettes within the first three months. In October 2009, Corrigan's Mayfair was awarded 'AA London Restaurant of the Year'.
Alongside appearances on BBC2's Full on Food, Saturday Kitchen and Market Kitchen, Richard also hosts the Irish primetime television series, Corrigan Knows Food, one of Ireland's most popular TV shows.
