About James Mackenzie
James Mackenzie is the owner and head chef of the Michelin-starred Pipe and Glass Inn, which he and his wife Kate have owned since 2006. Not only do James and Kate epitomise the skill and sound judgment required to run a successful restaurant, but they exude Yorkshire hospitality – their pub, a former coaching inn, is as noted for its welcoming atmosphere as it is for its classy comfort food, has become a world-class Michelin-starred destination.
James trained at Scarborough Technical College, where he met fellow Yorkshire men James Martin and Andrew Pern. After cutting his teeth at various establishments, James became Head Chef at Pern’s restaurant, The Star Inn at Harome. Here, he swore allegiance to British cuisine and perfected a lightness of touch that’s required to turn a good gastropub into a great one. Exemplary dishes are bold yet familiar, such as home smoked Mallard salad, dandelion leaf, air dried ham, crispy duck heart croutons, cranberry and clementine relish.
The Pipe and Glass has held a Michelin star since 2010 and had bestowed on it numerous other honours. In 2011, James published On the Menu, which won the Best First Cookbook at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. Unsurprising, given that James’s imaginative approach to old favourites proves that he’s a man as much in touch with his diners as the food he serves.
