Glenapp Castle Appoints New Head Chef
Tuesday 15th January 2013

Glenapp Castle, the five star Relais & Châteaux hotel in Ayrshire, Scotland, has just appointed a new Head Chef, Matt Worswick.

Matt joins Glenapp Castle from a two Michelin-starred, 4 AA Rosette background having previously worked as Sous Chef at Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham with chef-patron David Everitt-Matthias. He has also previously worked with Michelin-starred chefs Kenny Atkinson at St Martin's on the Isles of Scilly and Simon Hulstone at the Elephant in Torquay, as well as at Lords of the Manor in Gloucestershire.

Matt said

"I’m really excited to join Glenapp Castle and am looking forward to all the amazing Scottish produce. The hotel has its own garden and I can’t wait to work with the wild foods and seafood there. My food is very natural, seasonal and focused on flavours”.

Matt will continue to serve a daily changing three course gourmet lunch menu and a six course gourmet dinner menu.

Glenapp Castle, which is located near Ballantrae on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park, has 17 bedrooms and is run by husband and wife team Graham and Fay Cowan.

Fay commented:

"Matt’s pedigree is perfect for us and we’re really looking forward to working with him. We’re certain that his talent and creativity can only add to the already fantastic standard of cuisine at Glenapp Castle."

The castle is open to non-resident diners for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. A prior reservation is required.

Glenapp Castle re-opens for the 2013 season on Wednesday 27th March.
