Fergus Henderson

"If you're going to kill the animal it seems only polite to use the whole thing." With his typically bone dry aplomb, these words set out the omnivorous agenda for Fergus, the English chef who founded London's acclaimed St John Restaurant - a regular inclusion in lists of the world's 50 best. His landmark book Nose to Tail Eating also championed a rebirth of Britain's traditional dishes, a crusade continued in 2007 with the publication of Nose to Tail Eating and Beyond.
