James Mackenzie is one of England's brightest young chefs, using his uniquely imaginative approach to produce an outstanding take on British food. Quality local and seasonal produce is at the heart of his cooking. James is the proprietor and head chef of the Michelin Starred Pipe and Glass Inn which he and his wife Kate have owned since 2006. Having quickly established a reputation for unrivalled quality in the area, they have transformed the 17th century inn into a world-class Michelin destination. In their first year the Pipe and Glass Inn won the Yorkshire Life Dining Pub Of The Year AwardA and, in 2007, won the same publication's Restaurant Of The YearA title. Further recognition came for the Mackenzies in 2008, being named as the Best NewcomerA in The Northern Hospitality Awards, entering the list of 40 Best Restaurants Outside LondonA at The London Restaurant Awards, also being voted into The Top 30 Gastro Pubs In The UKA by PubChef Magazine and, finally, being awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand. In 2009, the Pipe and Glass Inn won Enjoy England's Taste Of EnglandA honour as well as retaining its Michelin Bib Gourmand. The ultimate accolade became reality when, in January 2010, the Pipe and Glass Inn achieved Michelin Star status, one of only ten pubs in the UK ever to gain this much coveted position.
