Theo then remained at River Café for a further 15 years as head chef and it was under his patronage that the restaurant received its first Michelin star in 1997. He left to launch Theo Randall at the InterContinental, which opened in November 2006. His commitment to delivering rustic produce-driven Italian food from the prestigious address of No. 1 Park Lane has earned him loyal followers and rave reviews from critics and food-lovers.
While Theo is a regular on national television, and has published three successful recipe books, PASTA (2006), My Simple Italian (2015) and The Italian Deli Cookbook (2021), he remains true to his culinary roots and can be found in the kitchen for most services.
