London based food writer completes review of all UK Michelin Star Restaurants on a 5 year food mission. Richard Bagnold, known online as Major Foodie, has completed a gastronomic adventure to review every Michelin Star Restaurant in the UK.
Bagnold decided to eat and review every Michelin star restaurant in the UK to prove that he could sample the best food on offer at an affordable price and be no more expensive than a meal at a restaurant chain. He discovered how to hack the fine dining system to make even the most elite restaurants affordable.
“If you see a 3-course set menu at a Michelin starred restaurant, it’s very likely you are going to get much more at no extra cost. Restaurants serve complimentary courses to demonstrate gastronomic flair – even the speciality bread is likely to be hand-made.” said Bagnold.
“Top restaurants have quiet periods and you can take advantage of set price menus over lunch, before 6pm and in some cases after 10pm. Researching places to eat, he discovered a way to dine at the best restaurants in the UK on budget.
Putting this to the test in London, Bagnold ate in all of the 1, 2 and 3 star Michelin restaurants and was surprised at the quality and flavour of the meals he was presented with. Major Foodie’s fine dining has caught the imagination of fans on Twitter and Instagram with tens of thousands of fellow foodies waiting for his next meal and honest review.
The Major Foodie website boasts a world map of the restaurants Bagnold has reviewed and allows visitors to filter by type of cuisine, number of stars and budget type.
