Heston Blumenthal splits from his wife

Heston Blumenthal splits from his wife and is now dating stunning American cookbook 'goddess' after 20 years of marriage

By
Sara Nathan and David Williams






'In love with food and sex': Suzanne Pirret (pictured) is now dating chef Heston Blumenthal


After 20 years of marriage, Heston Blumenthal has parted from the wife he called ‘the reason for my success’.

The celebrity chef is now dating a stunning American cookery book writer, the Daily Mail can reveal.

Blumenthal’s
relationship with his wife Zanna had survived the gruelling campaign to
turn their Fat Duck into one of the world’s leading restaurants, with
three Michelin stars.

But
the couple, who have three teenage children, yesterday admitted that
the stress of work and turning the Blumenthal name into a
multi-million-pound empire had taken its toll on their marriage.

Blumenthal,
45, is now romancing actress turned cookery writer Suzanne Pirret, who
has been billed as a ‘goddess’ by critics after writing The Pleasure Is
All Mine: Selfish Food for Modern Life.

Miss
Pirret, also 45, whose work has included a stint as a pastry chef at
Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Fifteen, poses lasciviously on the cover of
the book in a clinging white dress.


She has said: ‘Food and sex. Two of my favourite things, and the most powerful of all human drives.

'Best one after the other in either order, I’m not picky.’

A spokesman for the Blumenthals confirmed that their marriage is over.

‘Over the course of their marriage, they have built an extremely
successful business, but one which has unfortunately taken its toll on
their relationship,’ she said.
‘They remain good friends and devoted parents of their three children who are their main focus.’

The
self-taught chef, who has a £1million, two-year deal with Channel 4,
has become renowned for his adventures in so-called molecular
gastronomy, including his famous snail porridge and mustard ice cream.

He bought the Fat Duck in Bray, Berkshire, in 1995 after scraping enough money together to buy the 450-year-old tumbledown pub.

The
past few years have seen him expand his business into the capital to
include the critically lauded restaurant, Dinner, at the Mandarin
Oriental hotel in Knightsbridge.

He also stars in adverts for Waitrose.

In a magazine interview four years ago, Blumenthal spoke movingly of his relationship with his wife, whose real name is Susanna.

‘Zanna is the reason for my success because she has supported me every step of the way,’ he said.

‘She’s sacrificed so much and has never complained.’
Mrs Blumenthal, 47, added: ‘It sounds corny, but I knew from the outset that I’d found my soul mate.

‘There was a deep connection between us and even though we were just teenagers, we knew we had found something special.

Mostly it's women who dump their life partners/husbands when they're bored of them and then get the house plus the children.

But in the money circles it's still men duping women after 20 odd years.

I love snails with garlic. People often cook them too long and that is why they are chewy. Very Happy
