Bromsgrove chef feeds TV celebs

Lorenzo and the crew

The culinary skills of an award-winning Bromsgrove chef are proving to be increasingly popular with hungry celebrities.

Lorenzo Richards, who runs The Wildmoor Oak pub and restaurant, provided the onsite catering for the cast and crew of Channel 4’s Renovation Game when they were filming in Bromsgrove.

The show, in its second series, is presented by Jonnie Irwin and Simon Obrien. With the help of a team of builders and designer, the crew put their own fees on the line if their renovation work fails to raise the value of a property. The Bromsgrove episode will be shown on Channel 4 later this year.

“The crew were working long days to a very tight schedule and had to fit in meal times as and when they could,’ says Lorenzo. “I was never quite sure when I’d get the call to head down with a tasty lunch or dinner.”

Lorenzo is no stranger to cooking up a treat for stars of the big and small screen. Last year the cast of BBC1’s Hustle turned up at The Wildmoor Oak, to take a break from filming in Birmingham.

Prior to establishing his concept restaurant Lorenzo had also cooked at Elstree Studios in London, preparing meals for celebrities and actors including the cast of Eastenders.
