Chef Marco Pierre White wants to be cremated in his restaurant’s pizza oven so people can buy his ashes to bake BREAD
CHEF Marco Pierre White wants to be cremated in his restaurant’s pizza oven — so his children can urn a crust on eBay.
The 59-year-old said: “I want a nice cremation.
“People could buy my ashes by the gram and bake it into bread.
“I think lots of people would buy my ashes. Once you’re gone you’re gone, so why not?
“Maybe I could even be cremated in my new pizza oven.”
The oven is in Mr White’s — the biggest pizzeria in the world and the first restaurant he has opened in London’s West End for more than a decade.
He is giving all profits from the venture to his three children — chef Luciano, 26, Marco Jnr, 25, and Mirabelle, 18, his business partner at The Rudloe Arms hotel near Bath.
Marco, the first head chef on TV’s Hell’s Kitchen, said: “If you don’t give your children responsibility, then they become self-entitled.”
Mr White’s, in Leicester Square, will have 600 seats and the potential to serve 10,000 customers a day.
Marco, who made his former trainee Gordon Ramsay cry after hurling sauces at him, added: “The pizzas will all be very classical. I can’t imagine pineapple on any.
“If you were to put it on pizza then put fresh pineapple — not tinned chunks or rings chopped up like some other famous pizzerias we know.
“There will be a margherita with lots of mozzarella and basil. It is the original pizza and it’s delicious.”
