Favourite Local: Ken Ho

“This is a Cantonese restaurant in Birmingham, which is next door to the Hippodrome and is always busy. It’s traditional and the dim sum is absolutely amazing. I go here three or four times a month for what I call ‘Dim Sum Mondays’. The roast meats there are also incredibly good”

About Brad Carter

Part of a new generation of young, ambitions chefs pushing the boundaries of what British food can be, Brad Carter goes deeper than most into exploring the idea of terroir in cooking. Wild game, foraged herbs, forgotten ingredients and rare-breed animals are the lifeblood of a cooking style that looks to change how we think about our own food.
