A new wave of British cooking at restaurants in Manchester

It wasn't so long ago that UK cooking suffered from a pretty poor reputation but thankfully that has all changed. Chefs like Gordon Ramsey, Rick Stein and Heston Blumenthal have helped to transform our cuisine and in the process they have lifted the reputation of UK cooking to a new level. In Manchester, British restaurants have been inspired by these stellar chefs and they are beginning to offer a whole new take on UK food. Often, these chefs are using fresh local produce along with their own training and expertise to create some memorable dishes.
