Commenting Mike said: “I was shaking! I didn’t expect it at all.

“I am passionate about Bolton. I used to have a restaurant here years ago, it’s where you come from, it’s your roots. You can’t forget where you come from.”

In addition to his work as a chef providing high class restaurant food in people’s homes Mike is also chairman of the Food and Drink Board at the Octagon Theatre and is heavily involved in the organisation of the Bolton Food and Drink Festival, which boasted record visitor numbers this year.

He said: “The food festival was absolutely fantastic. I go all over the world, I have cooked in Abu Dhabi and all over the place with a lot of top chefs, but the one thing that I won’t miss every year is the food festival.”

“I had the opportunity of going abroad during this year’s event but I wasn’t going to do that.”
