The Thursday Brunch on #DubaiToday: Michelin-Starred Chris Galvin
Today on the Thursday Brunch Suzanne Radford welcomes Chris Galvin, half of the Michelin star winning Galvin Brothers, on the show to talk about their new restaurant Galvin Dubai. Riath Hamed of Balqees Honey and Orit Mohammed of Boon Coffee will be joining them in the studio.
Originally inspired by the cooking of his grandmother, UK-born Chris Galvin’s career is one of almost forty years as a chef working in some of the finest restaurants and hotels on both sides of the Atlantic. Chris started in a small neighbourhood restaurant as a pot washer for Antony Worrall-Thompson as did his younger brother Jeff. After both working in the industry for many years they partnered up in 2005 to open their first solo venture, the eponymous Galvin Bistrot de Luxe in Baker Street, to much critical acclaim.
In May 2006, Chris and Jeff launched Galvin at Windows, on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane, with André Garrett (ex-Orrery) as their Head Chef. The restaurant was awarded one Michelin star in 2010.
