Stephen Terry is a professional chef from Wales, who was taught by Marco Pierre White in his kitchen "Harvey's" and currently owns, and is Head Chef at, the Hardwick Restaurant in Abergavenny, Wales. The Hardwick was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand rating in 2011.
His restaurant The Hardwick is managed by his wife Joanna, and father in law Derry Nicklin, and is unrecognisable from any of his previous restaurants where he was purely the head chef.
Stephen went into business with Franceso and bought the Walnut Tree Inn in Abergavenny (previously run by Italian celebrity chef Franco Taruschio) and gained a Michelin star there. However they decided to go their separate ways and Stephen left the business in Francesco Mattioli's hands, however with the loss of the Michelin starred chef the business began to collapse which led to an episode of "Gordon Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares" being filmed there.
Terry is mostly known for stints on the BBC programme representing Wales in Great British Menu. He won in the first round in 2008 against Angela Hartnett, and cooked the fish course at the final banquet. In the 2009 series, he was beaten by James Sommerin in the first round.
