Simon Wright

Food writer, Broadcaster, Restauranteur and Former editor of AA Restaurant Guide

"Money is what oils the machine, but the engine is love."

Simon Wright stumbled into a career in food 25 years ago after a dismal stint as a town planner.

He has been a partner in several award-winning Welsh restaurants alongside being the editor of the AA Restaurant Guide, publishing a couple of books and making the odd television series for BBC Wales and Channel 4.

He was also Restaurant Consultant on all the UK produced episodes of Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and he can still often be heard on BBC Radio Wales. He has devoted much of the past two years to Wright’s Food Emporium in Carmarthenshire a cafe and food store in the countryside recently described by Yotem Ottolenghi as "a revelation".
