Happy Birthday Head ChefNews | roomybonce | April 29, 2009 at 4:03 pm
Some say he speaks 18 languages, and can blend the cuisines of six continents into a Michelin starred taste extravaganza that can trigger the menopause in the more nervy female. Others say he can talk to stoats and has slept with seven women, almost all of whom are now blind.
Strange cloaked men tell of his long Sheffield nights painting the bulbous-eyed black doll of Derek Inglis that was then suspended in a Magnum of vodka for all eternity. Directors in countless (well, ok, a couple of) post houses have marvelled at his quicksilver fingers, and Barbers nationwide have despaired at his hair, but one thing is certain: he is Mr D, the flame-tressed polymath of three cities, our friend and Head Chef.
Happy 40th sir.Tags: head chef, marcus daley
Well, that’s a nice surprise and complimentary, though I’ll have to look up polymath. Makes a nice change from the three birthday wishes I received from delighted friends that were basically abuse. There’s no denying it though, I’m 40 and it feels does feel slightly odd, like that day you knew was coming, but felt too far away to think about.
Thanks Roomy, I’m flattered and humbled to get my own birthday post.
