Antony Worrall Thompson is a restaurateur and TV chef. He presented Saturday Kitchen until 2006 and was a regular guest chef on Ready Steady Cook.

Known as AWT or Wozza, Antony was born in Shakespeare's hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon and educated at a Canterbury public school. Afterwards, he studied hotel and catering management at Westminster Kingsway College in London before taking his first catering job in Essex.

In 1978, he moved to London and became sous chef at Brinkley's Restaurant in the Fulham Road. One month later, he was head chef. The following year he took a sabbatical in France, eating and working his way around the local cuisine. By 1981, AWT had opened his own restaurant in London, M?©nage ?† Trois - notable for only serving starters and puddings.

Since then, the restaurants he's been involved with have been heaped with accolades. He has won the Mouton Rothschild Menu Competition and the Meilleur Ouvrier de Grande Bretagne (MOGB) award. Currently Antony has two restaurants - Kew Grill in Richmond-Upon-Thames and Windsor Grill in Berkshire.

Antony has been involved with numerous restaurants in London and the Home Counties. He has also written several recipe books including Antony's Weekend Cookbook and Real Family Food.

He is passionate about organic farming and grows many herbs and vegetables for his restaurants.
