Original article from Kent Live
Kent is home to a number of Michelin star and critically acclaimed restaurants.
Those who love fine dining have plenty of options when it comes to a meal out in the county.
We all like to be impressed when we eat out, and that includes Masterchef judge and Man of Kent, Gregg Wallace.
The 56-year-old lives in Biddenden with his family after moving down from South London via Whitstable.

This week, Gregg sat down exclusively with KentLive to talk about all things Masterchef, workouts and family life.
He also provided the KentLive readers with some tips and recommendations on some of his favourite restaurants in the county.
Unsurprisingly, Gregg named The West House in Biddenden as well as the hugely popular Rocksalt in Folkestone.
Gregg did however reserve a special mention for one Tunbridge Wells Italian restaurant.
The star of the popular BBC One cooking show admitted he stumbled upon the restaurant but labelled his meal ‘superb’.
On one of his few visits to Tunbridge Wells, Gregg enjoyed a meal at La Follia, a quintessential Italian restaurant in the heart of the town.
Run by Sara and Antonio, La Follia brings the tastes of Monza in Italy to West Kent with high quality food matched by some ‘Italian-style’ hospitality.
Recalling his visit to the restaurant Gregg said: "There is a lovely little Italian that I only went to once when I was in Tunbridge Wells, it is tiny and only seats about 40 people."
“La Folio in Tunbridge Wells, if you want proper Italian food go there, it is superb!”
“I stumbled upon it by accident but it’s fantastic,” He added.
Gregg has just finished filming for the new series of Masterchef but was giving nothing away.
"I love Masterchef, I have just finished the final of Masterchef professionals!
"The food is just…I feel incredibly privileged to be a part of it. I don't know where you would go or how much you would have to spend to sample that kind of food."
