Having worked as part of The Fat Duck Group since 1999, including 7 years as Head Chef at The Fat Duck, Ashley has risen through the ranks to the position of Chef Director and now dedicates his time to heading up Dinner.
Together with Heston, Ashley has consulted the kitchen archives at Hampton Court Palace and spent endless hours researching at the British Library to unearth the ideas that would bring forth the evolution of the menu at Dinner. Now with two restaurants, in London and Melbourne, his research continues with food historians in Australia and the United Kingdom.
