Growing up around a father who’s profession was a butcher 40 years and a mother who was a classic baker has got to be a good grounding for a chef, that’s definitely the case for Stuart Norman. Starting out washing pots from 15 years old in the Belfry Hotel, leading on to his city and guilds training, Stuarts influences have been gathered from working with some of the best chefs at some of the best restaurants nationally.
Working from the Belfry hotel to Manchester’s Victoria and Albert learning the very best in traditional British and French cooking combined with experience in regional Spanish cuisine overseeing the kitchen in an independent Manchester Tapas restaurant. He then moved on to head up Thomas’s Chop House then on to open Sam’s Chops House, it was a natural progression to open his own successful business.
For the last 6 years, he has been working in training and development of kitchen teams though out the North West, passing on a wealth of experience from his 30 years of the restaurant and pub industry helping to shape the next generation of the chef.
