I don’t think girls are scared of working hard at all, but it’s the social part of living that will always be at the back of a girl’s mind and I think that’s why there are so few female chefs – apart from exceptions like Angela Hartnett and Claire Smyth [at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay]. I’m good at getting up and running a restaurant.” When Wareing’s restaurant at The Berkeley reopens, it will be a very different place.To be clear: the fact that I’m here now isn’t by luck or by being the most talented chef in the world, because I’m not. “People’s perception of fine dining is as stiff and French, and I would see customers come in and open a great book of a menu with a sense of nervousness,” he explains.“I don’t have a policy about kids, but it’s exactly the same as on a plane.
