Chef Tommy Heaney
Meet the chef
Having trained under Michelin-starred chefs Richard Davies, David Everitt-Matthias and Ollie Dabbous, Tommy Heaney is the head chef of Leicester's restaurant at The Great House.
Irish chef Tommy Heaney's first experience of the kitchen was at 14 years old washing dishes one summer at his uncle, Damien Heaney's Legends restaurant in America. But Tommy soon found himself helping on the larder and pastry section, and fell in love with the artistic side of plating a dish and the competitive nature of the kitchen
Tommy describes his food as honest, delicate and pure but packed with flavour where each element on the plate has an important role to play.
