The Grand York has appointed a new executive chef.
Norman McKenzie joins the 207-bedroom hotel after running his own consultancy for the past year and a half, following roles as group executive chef for the Malhotra Group, head chef of the Feversham Arms Hotel, executive head chef at Oulton Hall Hotel, and prior to this, executive head chef for Handpicked Hotels.
Now in his new role, McKenzie will oversee all food and beverage operations, including casual dining restaurant The Rise, fine-dining at Hudsons and catering for conferences and events.
Commenting on Norman’s appointment, general manager, Philip Bolson, said; “We are delighted to have Norman onboard to lead our F&B offering. Norman brings with him invaluable experience, expertise and passion.”
McKenzie replaces Craig Atkinson, who departed the hotel last month to join Grantley Hall ahead of its opening this summer.
