Sometimes relationships can be very complicated. It is always difficult being on and off the relationship. Same is happening with this celebrity chef, Heston Blumenthal. 

It is still a long while after he is already divorced with his wife. So what are the dilemmas behind Heston’s relationship? We’ll follow it up!

A dilemma in the relationship!

It seemed that Blumenthal appeared to have all the essential ingredients for the perfect marriage as like his dishes. Blumenthal and his ex-wife met when they were young and built a successful business together as a couple.

She described Heston as her soul mate, and he described her as the reason behind his success.

But after 20 years of their marriage, Heston Blumenthal has left his wife, Zanna in 2011 and that too for Suzanne Pirret who is an American cookery book author and says her favorite things are “food and sex.”

Heston Blumenthal has three children with his wife, Jack, Jessica, and Joy.

It is understood that the Blumenthals’ marriage had been under the wire for several months and that the chef’s wife Zanna was aware of his relationship with Miss Pirret. A spokesman for the couple said:

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

Both of them met as teenagers when Zanna was working back them as a nurse and Heston was a credit controller. Mrs. Blumenthal, Zanna stated in a magazine interview four years ago:

“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.

Moreover, she added:

“We had very little money, but for my birthday, he took me for dinner at the best restaurant in London at the time, La Tante Claire.It was the first time I’d experienced fine dining and it blew me away, so food became our shared passion.”

On the other hand, Heston said in an interview:

“Zanna is the reason for my success because she has supported me every step of the way. She’s sacrificed so much and has never complained.”

It seems Heston has some lady curse as he broke up with actress turned cookery writer Suzanne Pirret.

He admitted in March that he was still legally married to his wife Zanna despite splitting in 2010.

But it was an interesting to turn of events as Heston Blumenthal sparked rumors in May of 2016 that he could be giving things another go with his estranged wife as celebrity chef was spotted with a gold wedding band on his ring finger.

Chef Heston Blumenthal is enjoying a new romance after he split with wife Zanna in 2011 after more than two decades of their marriage and its official.

Chef Heston Blumenthal couldn’t keep his hands off his new girlfriend Stephanie Gouveia on a night out in London in October of 2016. The French lady works in real estate, and sources say that Heston, now 50, is teaching her how to cook.

Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal said in 2014 that he would shut down his Fat Duck restaurant in the UK and temporarily relocate it to Australia for six months in 2015. The renowned gastronome said:

"We are going to shut the Fat Duck and bring it to Melbourne. It's somewhere between 12 and 18 courses, it's four hours of eating and it's pure, total theatre – like falling down a rabbit hole into a wonderland,"

The restaurant’s intercontinental relocation in Melbourne is the first overseas venture for Blumenthal brand and is a significant moment in the expansion of his distinctive culinary brand. Upon reaching the end of the temporary opening of the restaurant and renovating one in the UK, the restaurant became a permanent Melbourne based Dinner by celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal.
