Gordon Ramsay's Pétrus appoints new head chef

Neil Snowball is to become the new head chef of Pétrus.

Snowball, who replaces Sean Burbidge, will take up his new position at the Michelin-starred restaurant in Knightsbridge at the end of this month.

Between 2008 and 2011, Snowball was senior sous chef at Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's, working alongside the head chef and managing a bridge of 35. Later he worked under Clare Smyth in Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, assisting with dish development. He is joining from the Fat Duck, where he was senior development chef.

Previous to this, his experience also included working as a sous chef in the Leyton Hall in South Africa and at Grayshott Spa in HindHead, England.

Gordon Ramsay said: "Having previously been part of our group and developing his skills inside the company we are very confident that Neil will deliver the high-standard dining experience that Pétrus is renowned for. I'm delighted to welcome him back."

Snowball added: "It's great to be coming back to where I have spent the majority of my career. This is a big opportunity for me, and I can't wait to get in the kitchen of such a prestigious restaurant."

Gordon Ramsay Group has a total of 24 restaurants globally and seven Michelin stars, with 12 restaurants in the UK.
