Restaurants

By 1981, Antony opened Ménage a Trois in Knightsbridge - widely known to be the Princess of Wales’ favourite restaurant. As the only restaurant in London to serve just starters and puddings, Ménage a Trois and Antony received a tremendous amount of press coverage and critical acclaim. Antony subsequently went on to open Ménage a Trois restaurants in Bombay, Melbourne, Stockholm and New York.

I have found that to produce the best possible food you also need the freshest ingredients. In all my years of cooking professionally I haven’t come across anything that beats my Sub-Zero Fridge/Freezer unit in terms of size, configuration and technical superiority. It is an invaluable tool for me because of the superior refrigeration system unique to Sub-Zero. With other brands there is an exchange of air between the fridge and freezer, meaning humidity levels are low, which can dry out food. My Sub-Zero model keeps the air in each compartment separate, preserving all food, especially fruit and vegetables, for longer. My Wolf Gas Range (R486G) is one of the most precise instruments in my kitchen. The six separate burners can go from the lowest flame for simmering and melting to a strong searing heat for the utmost control. The griddle gives me the flexibility to cook directly on the temperature control surface which is great for breakfasts, pancakes and even scallops and delicate white fish. The new showroom with everything on show makes me want to move home so that I can create a new, even better kitchen. Antony is a huge fan of Sub-Zero and Wolf and insists on cooking and cooling with the brands in both his UK and Spanish homes.
