Few chefs in England are busier than Simon Hulstone. Besides being England’s entrant at the prestigious 2011 Bocuse D’Or, he’s in charge of the kitchen at both Torquay’s Michelin-starred restaurant The Elephant Brasserie and its adjoining The Room in the Elephant.
The son of a chef, Hulstone was a Roux Scholar, Knorr National Chef of the Year and World Junior Chef by the time he was 30. After working in kitchens like Cotswold House, Cheltenham’s Bacchanalian and the Bailiffscourt Hotel, he moved to Devon to head up the Elephant, having already attracted the Michelin panel’s attention. Very recently, Simon was selected to redesign the menu for BA First Class.
