John-Burton Race, the celebrity chef, was set for a return to the restaurant business with the purchase of the Carved Angel, the famous Dartmouth restaurant. Last autumn, the former Michelin-starred chef announced he was looking for a suitable site to re-start his restaurant career, after spending time in France filming French Leave, the Channel 4 television show. The Carved Angel's current owner, Peter Gorton, will expand the Horn of Plenty, his other restaurant in Devon, and establish a cookery school. Burton-Race is also filming a new television series about Westcountry regional produce.
