New Executive Head Chef at Tregenna Castle Hotel
An international award winning chef has joined Tregenna Castle Hotel’s team. Scott Young brings a wealth of experience to his new role as Executive Head Chef at the St Ives hotel.
Scott has worked in fifteen countries which gives him a thorough knowledge of world cuisine. He is now keen to give diners the best of Cornish produce from a globally inspired menu.
“Cornwall produces excellent quality ingredients which are so exciting to use. My international experience has strongly influenced the new menu and I am enjoying offering Tregenna’s guests the best local produce prepared in a creative way.”
Scott has won gold and silver medals in Australia’s highly competitive Annual Salon Culinary. In the past he has been the Executive Sous Chef for international hotels in Australasia, has overseen award winning gastro pubs and restaurants here in the UK and has even been the Executive Chef for Honda’s Formula One team. Scott also managed the catering for the Rolling Stones ‘Bridges to Babylon’ tour, the largest catering operation for a musical tour in the whole world to date.
Operations Director James Parker is already getting great feedback from visitors.
“Scott has really made his mark by introducing a round the world culinary experience using the very best of Cornwall’s produce. His award winning expertise ensures that Tregenna’s visitors from near and far are enjoying outstanding meals.”
Tregenna Castle is encouraging guests and local residents alike to try Scott’s new menu by offering a three course dinner for two people complete with a bottle of wine for just £48 from Monday to Saturday from 7-9 pm.
The hotel is also offering other opportunities to enjoy Scott’s menus with ‘buy a lunch, get one for a penny’ during the week and ‘buy one get one free’ cream teas between 2 -5 pm every day.
Standing in a 72 acre estate, Tregenna Castle Hotel is well-known for its stunning views of St Ives and the glorious coastline of St Ives Bay. Frequently used by hotel guests, the restaurant is open to non-residents throughout the year.
