MASTERCHEF WINNER / EXECUTIVE CHEF / OWNER
Simon will be on site daily working with his team to create incredible food for everyone who visits WOOD, from Manchester and Beyond…
Former Data Manager, Simon started cooking when he could ‘reach the top of an oven’. His passion began when, at eight years old, he won a competition to be anything for a day and he chose to be a chef. Thirty years later Simon’s MasterChef win saw him fulfilling a dream he has had since he was young.
His areas of passion include fine dining, the art of plating, and teaching. His debut cookbook At Home with Simon Wood – Fine Dining Made Simple launched earlier this year.
2017 sees Simon opening his first restaurant in the First Street development bringing his unique culinary style along with his handpicked team to the heart of Manchester.
