“Theo Randall is this country’s best non-Italian Italian chef.  His feel and instinct for ingredients is unrivalled…” - Tony Turnbull, The Times

Theo Randall opened his first multi award-winning restaurant, Theo Randall at The InterContinental, to huge critical acclaim and success in 2006 and hasn’t looked back since.  The restaurant has attracted high praise with critic Jay Rayner declaring it ‘the best meal I have had all year’, and was awarded London Restaurant Awards Best Italian Restaurant of The Year, Harden’s Guide 2013 Best Italian/ Mediterranean over £50, the highest ranked Italian on The Sunday Times Food List 2013, and his ‘Cappelletti di Vitello’ won Tatler Restaurant Awards - Best Restaurant Dish 2014. 

In 2016 Theo launched casual dining concept Theo’s Simple Italian in London.  His first venture in Asia, Theo Mio, opened at The Intercontinental Bangkok in 2015, followed by Theo Mistral at The Intercontinental Hong Kong in 2018.  

Theo was formerly Head Chef and Partner at The River Café, which was awarded its first Michelin Star under his direction, with praise from major critics who described it as 'a place of pilgrimage' which has 'changed Britain's restaurant culture for good.'  

His many television appearances include Saturday Kitchen, Market Kitchen, Beat the Chef, Something for the Weekend, Food Poker, Country Show Cook Off, Made in Italy: Top Ten Classic Dishes, Munch Box, Sunday Brunch, Celebrity MasterChef, Cooks Questions, Win It Cook It, Weekend Kitchen, Lorraine, The Weakest Link celebrity special, Countryfile, and Pointless Celebrities.  Theo starred as mentor and judge in The Chef’s Protégé on BBC2, and competed (and won!) against other Michelin star chefs in new BBC cooking series Yes Chef 2016-2017, and mentored contestants in My Kitchen Rules on Channel 4 in 2017.

In 2010 Theo published his first book, Pasta, with Ebury Press.  He also wrote the foreword to Where to Go When: Italy (DK), and contributed to The Silver Spoon, a book of recipes by celebrated Italian chefs.  His latest book is My Simple Italian: 100 inspired recipes from one of Britain’s best Italian chefs (Ebury Press) published April 2015.

Theo is much sought after as a consultant. In 2008 he was approached by Pizza Express to create four special pizzas for their autumn menu which revolutionised the much-loved institution. He has since worked with Marks & Spencer, Zizzi, ASK, Bakkavor, Sacla, San Pellegrino, Sainsbury’s, Villa Sandi Prosecco, Colicci, and partnered with Gin Mare to create the limited edition ‘Ginettone’ for Christmas 2018.  Theo promotes the use of Italian food and drink with Protected Designation of Origin status including Parmigiano-Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma, and he has addressed the Abruzzo Wine Consortium in London.

A popular choice for food industry awards shows, Theo has recently hosted Chesterfield Food and Drink Awards, as well as being judge and host for Café Life, The PAPAs, and The Sammies Awards since 2015. He is increasingly in demand for events in Asia and the Middle East, working with Jones the Grocer in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and with Intercontinental Hotel Group in Bangkok, Qatar, Singapore, and Qatar Airlines.

When not busy at his restaurants, Theo spends his time in Italy and France researching new dishes and enjoying time with his family.

My Simple Italian: 100 inspired recipes from one of Britain's best Italian chefs
Theo Randall loves Italian food. As head chef at the iconic River Cafe he won a michelin star for his Italian menus and his restaurant Theo Randall at the Intercontinental is consistently voted on of the best Italians in the UK. In his new book, Theo wants to show you how to make his favourite Italian dishes at home - the food he cooks and eats when he's not working at his restaurant. Theo focuses on what he loves best - a few top quality ingredients making perfectly balanced flavour combination - and offers over 100 recipes with simple methods that work in a home kitchen. For Theo, food is a pleasure to be shared with friends and family and cooking should be relaxing, enjoyable. With this in mind, Theo's recipes take from just 15 minutes to make from scratch so you can pick a dish depending on the time you have, then spend more time eating, enjoying and sharing the food you've prepared. Chapters are split by meal times with an emphasis on simplicity, with big and small sharing plates and lots of one-pots on offer. There are speedy starters, mains and puddings but Theo shows you how to make Italian staples from scratch too. So, when you do have time and want to make your own pastry or bake your own pizza, you have the best recipes to hand. Fresh and innovative, Theo's approach means you can relax at mealtimes while enjoying delicious food every day of the week.
