Chewton Glen has showed its support to the care sector by providing training for chefs at a local care home.
As part of a new partnership, 12 chefs from Colten Care attended bespoke training sessions at the five-star Hampshire hotel’s The Kitchen cookery school.
The training was led by chef tutor Steve Bulmer who has 20 years of Michelin level restaurant experience in the UK and Europe including with Raymond Blanc.
Alex Von Ulmenstein, Chewton Glen’s food and beverage operations manager, said: “We want the Colten Care chefs to get the most out of their experience and be able to apply new techniques on behalf of their residents.
“It’s not so much about replicating the same menus as the Chewton Glen but rather to add further expertise to their professional skills.
“We’re delighted that the first group of chefs enjoyed it so much and we look forward to welcoming the next cohort.
“It’s great to know we are supporting the quality of food in the care home sector.”
Following the success of the first cohort, the training will be extended to all 45 Colten chefs in due course.
Colten’s hotel services manager Fergus Davitt said: “We have many shared values with Chewton Glen such as the use of local suppliers and ingredients and a concentration on very high quality seasonal recipes.”
