London, 13 August 2018: This October, Chewton Glen, a five star country house hotel and spa based in the New Forest, will be gracing Jumeirah Carlton Tower’s Rib Room restaurant to bring guests a unique countryside culinary experience in London’s Knightsbridge.
Nestled on the fringe of the New Forest and within walking distance to the sea, Chewton Glen is an idyllic retreat with a sparkling history dating back to the early eighteenth century.
From the typically English to the totally cosmopolitan, Executive Head Chef Luke Matthews and his talented brigade create fine dining at its best at The Dining Room restaurant. Thanks to his 25 years of service at Chewton Glen, Luke Matthews has injected his personality and flair into The Dining Room’s menu, with signature dishes such as the Emmental Soufflé and Thai Lobster Curry.
Regional ingredients, inspiring new flavours, and a focus on sublime, contemporary cuisine is the order of the day at Chewton Glen. Under the expert direction of Luke Matthews, Chewton Glen’s 50 strong kitchen team have the responsibility for producing innovative new dishes and truly experimenting with flavour, ingredients and design using local ingredients and suppliers.
The Dining Room prides itself on its locally sourced regional ingredients, with much of the produce grown just yards away in the hotel’s own walled kitchen garden and nursery. Chewton Glen is no stranger to unique culinary experiences, being home to The Kitchen; an informal restaurant which allows guests to watch top chefs at work and is home to The Kitchen Cookery School headed up by celebrity chef and Chewton Glen alumni James Martin. In the past, Luke and James have worked together a great deal and are good friends.
They continue to work on a number of culinary project including exhibitions and cookery demonstration and, in addition to James Martin involvement in The Kitchen at Chewton Glen, Luke has appeared on James Martin’s Saturday Morning cookery show.
“Chewton Glen is my favourite hotel outside of London, due to its authentic British countryside roots. The fact that the team source fresh ingredients from their own kitchen garden is refreshing, and I’m looking forward to working with Luke to share an unforgettable pop-up experience with our guests,” said Simon Young, Executive Head Chef at Jumeirah Carlton Tower.
