Published online this week, and already endorsed by the food writer Tom Parker-Bowles (son of the Queen consort), Damian Wawrzyniak’s Top 10 was created in response to what he sees as a gap in the market and a desire to publicise ethnic restaurants that have often gone under-the-radar.
Rubbing shoulders with household names such as Gordon Ramsay and Nigella Lawson, as well as global superstars such as José Andrés and Andrew Zimmern, the Polish chef was ranked in an international study conducted by Just Food magazine using Twitter statistics gathered from the GlobalData Influencer platform.
Chef and restaurateur Damian Wawrzyniak has gone from managing Michelin-starred kitchens to baking bread for delivery to adapt to the pandemic lockdown.
A believer in hard work, famed chef Damien Wawrzyniak is busier than ever cooking food for the locked-down masses.
Named alongside the likes of Gordon Ramsey and Nigella Lawson as one of the ten most influential people working in the food service industry, Damian Wawrzyniak has cooked for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, appeared on the BBC alongside Mary Berry and been awarded the Knight’s Cross by President Andrzej Duda for his role in raising Poland’s profile abroad.
Top chef Damian Warzyniak whose House of Feasts restaurant in Peterborough has appeared in the Michelin Guide and who has also cooked for the Royal Family was told by the British Home Office that he only qualified for pre-Settled Status, which is generally for EU nationals who have not lived in the UK continuously for five years.
The Michelin Guide tweeted the news with a photo of two of Wawrzyniak’s signature dishes: Atlantic herring cured two ways and a hearty lard with pickles and activated charcoal sourdough bread.
