The Connaught, A L’Ecu de France and The Savoy. With names like that on your CV, diners understandably have pretty high expectations when visiting us for the first time. Terry Farr, Chef Patron of Friends, and his small brigade are determined to fulfil that expectation. Make no mistake, Terry’s passion is food. That’s why when taking time out of the kitchen, he’s to be found encouraging the chefs and restaurateurs of tomorrow.
From running cookery activities at local schools, to his role as a regular contributor to the Academy of Culinary Arts’ “Chefs Adopt a School” education scheme, Terry is also a patron of The London School of Hospitality and Tourism at the University of West London.
Terry is also well known to his peers, in his former role of Vice Chairman of The Master Chefs of Great Britain.
More evidence of his love of all things culinary and his desire to share that knowledge and experience is to to be found his regular columns in local newspapers and magazines. But as Terry says, when it comes to cooking, actions speak louder than words. That’s why he’s constantly in the kitchen refining and creating new dishes to add to his extensive repertoire.
