Criterion Going?

Marco Pierre White - arguably the most talented and influencial British cook of the second half of the 20th Century - has teamed up with Frankie Dettori - arguably an Italian jockey - to open a chain of Trattorias called "Frankie's". Dettori also has a range of frozen pizzas on sale in UK supermarkets. Who says London isn't the most exciting restaurant city in the world?

Whatever happened to Marco?I see him occasionally around town,looking madder and madder.

Hubris caught up with him and he took up drinking. Jay Rayner's perceptive profile tells the tale. Poor old sod got what he thought he always wanted and can't understand why he isn't happy. Personally, I believe that MPW personifies the fiction of Mervyn Peake. He started out as Steerpike and, having successfully usurped the establishment, is now turning into Lord Groan.
