Tony Bilson

Of all chefs, Tony Bilson is most associated with the French haute cuisine that has always influenced his elegant style of presenting food and wine in this country. A gregarious and cultured man, throughout his life he has made friendships with artists, writers and musicians, as well as chefs from all parts of the world. For him, art, life, food, wine and friendship are indissolubly linked.
