RESTAURANT SAT BAINS
Bains crossed paths with several influential British chefs over the course of his career. In 1999 Bains was awarded the Roux scholarship. The scholarship led to many opportunities, including working at the 3 Michelin starred, Le Jardin de Sens in the south of France. Bains returned to Nottingham and in 2002, opened Restaurant Sat Bains, winning his first Michelin star a year later.
In 2005 he, with his wife Amanda, took over the management of the attached bedrooms and renamed the business, Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms. The restaurant was awarded its second Michelin Star in 2011.
Proud of his Midlands roots, Sat has long championed the use of local suppliers and selected artisan producers, and has showcased this to remarkable effect on the international gastronomic stage, including demonstrating his dishes at congresses in Europe, the US, SE Asia, Japan and Australia. His debut book titled “Too Many Chiefs, Only One Indian” was released to critical acclaim in 2012 and has gone on to win 9 international awards.
