Follow that chef! - a list of all British and Irish Michelin starred chefs and restaurants on Twitter

This is a list (7th edition) of all British and Irish Michelin starred chefs/restaurants currently on Twitter, based on the 2016 Michelin guide for Great Britain and Ireland, which features 169 Michelin starred restaurants.

In cases where the head chef doesn't have a personal Twitter account I have mentioned the restaurant or hotel account, if available. I do realise of course that a list like this can never be complete and that it is outdated almost as soon as it is published. So please feel free to leave a comment if there are any updates.
