Colin Smith has been named as the new head chef at Samlesbury Hall in Lancashire - where he is on a mission to transform the food offering into the best the county has to offer.
Along with his team, he is developing a menu bursting with dishes created from locally sourced ingredients - and capped off with homemade cakes, pastries, and desserts.
Colin, who has spent the last 23 years working in kitchens across the UK, said: “What became immediately apparent to me is that there is a great team here who are really switched on and keen to take the food offering at Samlesbury hall to the next level.
“Our aims are really clear. We want to become the premier venue for weddings and events in Lancashire, if not the North West, and for lunches and casual diners we strive to be the best in the county.
“There is a real focus from our end on using as much locally-sourced produce as possible in every dish, including eggs laid by our very own free-range hens. These are exciting times; we have a shared vision and plenty of energy to deliver it."
