MasterChef to open own restaurant

MasterChef to open own restaurant

MasterChef has become one of Britain’s most popular [and fierce] TV shows. 40,000 apply with only 40 making it through to the TV show itself. Round by round tough test after tough test whittle those down until a winner is finally crowned.

In 2015 the North West finally claimed its’ first MasterChef champion in the shape of Oldham’s Simon Wood, and now 2017 sees him open his first restaurant - in Manchester and just a short stroll from Canal Street.

Bold flavours in an unintimidating quality environment with a playfully authentic touch.. this is Simon’s vision for his restaurant and his cooking. To help bring this vision into reality Simon has appointed seasoned restaurateur James Cunningham as the General Manager.

Having run several village venues, some may not know that James has developed a celebrated and award-winning career working for some of the industry’s best-known names from Harvey Nichols to Ramada through to six years with ABode Hotels and Michael Caines.

Speaking of his appointment James said “It is a fantastic honour to be asked to be involved with WOOD Manchester. Simon’s cuisine and vision are incredibly exciting and will bring something new to the restaurant scene here in Manchester. I can’t wait to open this amazing new venture to the public!”
