Angela Hartnett is married to her husband, fellow chef Neil Borthwick.

He’s currently the head chef of Angela’s restaurant Merchant Tavern.

However, apparently business and pleasure doesn’t always mix.

Angela previously said: “He’s a brilliant cook and he’s got a great palate, but he’s messy and it drives me insane at home.”

Angela hits out at Britain’s food culture

Angela hit out at the UK’s relationship with food in 2019.

She argued that people no longer have the time to take pride in the meals they cook.

“Our food culture is about money. People who have money can afford good food in this country,” she told BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs.

“When you haven’t got any money [and] you’re living on a low income, to patronise and sit there and say, ‘You’ve got to have an organic chicken’ is wrong.

“People don’t have the time to shop and the time to cook. Everyone says we’re a more unhealthy nation than ever and yet we’re not doing anything about it.”
