Paul Askew cooked for the G7 and helped celebrate the city's fabulous food and drink scene with the Foreign and Development Ministers last weekend.


'Our task was to embody the flavours, spirit and history of Liverpool across two services, to distil the essence of this great city for these global leaders onto their plates.' - Paul Askew, Patron Chef of The Art School.

Paul and his team prepared two menus for the G7. Starting with lunch at the Museum of Liverpool on The Pier Head, and then followed by dinner in the Beatles Story at The Royal Albert Dock.


With already so many accolades to his name, and his prestigious career perpetually elevating; cooking dinner for the G7 seemed like it was the perfect opportunity to aid in celebrating his 40th anniversary in the culinary arts.


Paul Askew, said: 'The brief was something truly unique compared to everything in my career and my team’s so far - to cook for the G7 and do it all on site away from The Art School.'

We are very proud and incredibly happy how the weekend unfolded and it’s still quite surreal to reflect on it all.'
