Tom Kerridge is heading to Birmingham to cook at a special Simpsons birthday dinner


Tom Kerridge and other culinary stars are lining up to help Birmingham’s Simpsons restaurant celebrate 25 years in business.

Two very special dinners are being held next month to mark the anniversary.

On Wednesday October 3, Simpsons chefs past and present will join forces to cook a dinner to celebrate the restaurant’s impact on Birmingham’s dining scene.

Simpsons first opened in Kenilworth in 1993, securing a Bib Gourmand within two years and a Michelin star in 2001.

The restaurant, under Andreas Antona and his wife Alison, has often been credited with changing the Midlands culinary scene thanks to its influence over so many chefs’ careers.

In its 25 year history, Simpsons kitchen has been home for many talented chefs including Andy Waters, Adam Bennett, Glynn Purnell, James Cross, Jeremy Toth, Marcus Eaves, Mark Fry, Matt Cheal and more recently Nathan Eades.

The dinner, priced at £75 for four courses, will feature a course cooked by each chef.

Reservations can be made from 7pm until 9.30pm.
