About us

Adam’s career began at the Dorchester, London cooking under esteemed chef, Anton Mosimann OBE. Since then, he has cooked at several high profile restaurants – most recently Simpsons, the long standing Michelin-starred restaurant in Edgbaston. In January 2013, Adam and his commis chef, Kristian Curtis achieved the best result ever for a UK team in the Bocuse d’Or – the world’s most challenging and prestigious cooking competition. This May, Adam reached the finals of Bocuse d’Or 2015 when he secured 6th place in the European finals in Stockholm, against some stiff competition. Diners at The Cross can experience his talent for taste and beautiful presentation.

Andreas Antona’s early years were spent working in kitchens in Germany and Switzerland, providing him with excellent training.

Since then, he has worked with some of the biggest names in the chef world, including Michael Quinn MBE, Britain’s first celebrity chef, London and Anton Mosimann OBE. He left London to work in the Midlands and it was in the renowned Plough and Harrow in Birmingham where he began winning international acclaim.

In 1993, Andreas opened his first restaurant Simpsons in Kenilworth and two years later was among the first restaurants in the area to win a Michelin star.

Andreas has now left the kitchen to focus on life as a restaurateur and is also part of the team behind Pure Bar & Kitchen in Birmingham.
