The chef, owner of Michelin-starred restaurant Benares, London, will open restaurant Hawkyns at the Crown Inn, Amersham, on 15 January.
Kochhar said: “I’m incredibly excited about the opening of Hawkyns. This is going to be my first restaurant offering a modern approach to traditional British cuisine. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”
Head chef Ross Bott, who previously worked at Benares and as head chef at Canary Wharf restaurant One Canada Square, will lead the kitchen.
Sample dishes are set to include scallops with leek terrine, burnt leek and apple puree; tamarind duck with salt baked celeriac; chicken tikka pie; and fish and chips.
A spokesman for Old Amersham Hotels, which operates the Crown Inn, said: “We are delighted that Atul has agreed to partner with us at the Crown Inn. It is going to be a very exciting time for us all and we know that our guests will be delighted.”
