Following the success of Sunday Brunch, Simon co – hosted an initial 4 part Channel 4 documentary ‘Tricks of the Restaurant Trade’, giving insight into the tactics employed by many high end and high street restaurants to entice customers, which followed up with a popular series 2. Its’ success led to a further 12 episodes being commissioned which has just been announced.

Aside from his hectic filming schedule Simon is a chef/owner of 9 restaurants in the NW England and one in Dubai. Simon’s real passion for food began as a restaurateur and he continues to cook in the restaurants every week, which he enjoys immensely; but also keeps him in touch with the culinary trends of the moment.
