Aiden has made numerous TV appearances, including Masterchef. In addition to Tom Aiken's eponymous restaurant, Aiden has worked at Pied à Terre in London, Adlard's in Norwich, Peacock Alley and the Commons in Dublin, and Danesfield House in Buckinghamshire. At the age of 22, Aiden Byrne became the youngest chef ever to win a Michelin Star. Aiden's main priority is keep The Church Green food standards the highest level possible. The food is British, but "simpler" than the Dorchester fare. He intends to keep running the restaurants and aims to keep the focus on quality locally-sourced, seasonal produce.
