Gordon RamsAy and Jamie Oliver are not the only ones trying to do something about the state of British cooking. Former Michelin-star chef Jeff Peters, who has worked with Mr Ramsay, has some strong concerns — and plans — of his own.
Mr Peters, 38, believes people no longer know how to cook, unlike previous generations. “We are living in an age of convenience,” says Mr Peters, who spent the 1990s as a chef in Claridge’s and The Square. “It is worrying, because we will lose the art of cooking, for instance if children see their parents getting takeaways.”
