Mike started his career cooking as an apprentice in some of the best restaurants in the Savoie region of France. Mike’s flair for food, cooking and ability to communicate led to a side career in television, where he presented 10 food TV series over the following 8 years, culminating in Countrywise Kitchen for ITV, with a regular viewership of over 4 million. Mike controls the wild deer over 40,000 acres of private land in the area and supplies his restaurants with a sustainable quantity of amazing venison. Much of the venison served is still hunted by Mike himself, who personally harvests over 600 deer annually. In 2009 Mike started The Harwood Arms in Fulham. The pub attained a Michelin star in 2010 and has held it ever since - the only pub in London to do so, then and now!
