Fred Sirieix is THE maitre d' who has taken his skills from 'front of house' to the TV screen.
With Podcast Radio, he talks First Dates, his rise to fame, and whether he has ambitions to be famous in his homeland.
Of course, one must chat about the importance of food in a relationship, and working with Gordon Ramsey.
Fred may be best known for appearing on Channel 4's First Dates, and BBC Two's Million Pound Menu, but after growing up in France and training to work in front of house in a Michelin-starred restaurant in France, he made his way to La Tante Claire in London.
Until 2019 he was the general manager of Michelin-starred restaurant Galvin at Windows at the London Hilton. Food and the business was his passion.
