Marco protege takes helm at North Somerset steakhouse

A chef who helped Marco Pierre White attain two of his three Michelin Stars at his famed Harveys restaurant in London has taken the reins at the South West’s leading steakhouse bar and grill.

Jason Everett, who worked with the Hell’s Kitchen star and restauranteur for two years while he was building his reputation as the most exciting chef the country had ever seen, is now heading up the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill at Cadbury House in North Somerset as executive head chef.

Alongside Gordon Ramsay, Jason was instrumental in helping Marco attain two of his three Michelin stars, making Harveys the hangout of choice for the London celebrity scene.

Having left the bright lights of London to pursue new ventures, which included owning his own restaurant called The Goat House in Brent Knoll near Weston, Jason now plans to make the popular eaterie the go-to destination for those wanting a quality but affordable meal out.

He also plans to make the venue the flagship steakhouse where he will teach tomorrow’s cooks methods and skills that made Pierre White the youngest chef to have attained three Michelin stars.

Jason said: “Marco has always kept in touch to see what I’ve been up to so we got together at the 25th anniversary exhibition of his ground breaking White Heat book. It was there that he asked if I would be interested in taking over the steakhouse at Cadbury House.

“The things I learned with Marco while at Harveys have never gone away and I now plan to pass on that knowledge to the team here. It was a small kitchen but ultimately helped build my career and I want to do the same for those coming into the sector.

“I also want to create something where the expectations are high and there is a good level of consistency so that customers and guests can experience Marco’s vision of affordable glamour.

“It’s a fantastic venue like no other and the chance to work with Marco again was difficult to turn down. After all, how often do you get asked by one of cooking’s greats to run one of his restaurants!”
