Celebrity Chef Michael Caines Talks About Adoption with Former BBC Presenter Kally Adderkin-Hall
By: KAH Productions
Caines explained that his birth mother was white and his birth father was originally from the West Indies. At the time being in an unmarried, mixed heritage relationship was frowned upon and this lead to his mother giving him up for adoption.
Caines said he always knew he was different especially as his adoptive parents were both white, but that they were "an amazing family and never wanted for any love or felt that I was somehow missing out on something".
Caines who opened his own restaurant in 2017, Lympstone Manor a luxury boutique hotel and restaurant in Exeter, Devon which he describes as "the realisation of a dream, my vision of country house hospitality for the 21st Century".
Kally Adderkin-Hall who is now executive producer for KAH Productions, is filming a documentary video for Families for Children Trust', a voluntary adoption agency covering Cornwall, Devon and Dorset.
