Longueville Manor In Jersey Launches Guest Chef Series

Longueville-Manor

This year Longueville Manor, a proudly family-owned luxury hotel in Jersey, is hosting a delectable guest chef series


Launching in February, Longueville Manor will begin the series with two prestigious and Michelin-starred chefs, George Blogg from Gravetye Manor, followed by Michael Caines from Lympstone Manor.

Throughout the exciting series, each chef will create a collaborative tasting menu working closely with Longueville Manor’s Executive Chef Andrew Baird. Preparing an equal number of courses each, the chefs will showcase their regions while Andrew celebrates the best of Jersey’s award-winning produce.

At the helm for over 25 years, Andrew has acute knowledge of the exquisite ingredients on the island and his relationships with their producers are second to none. Each evening will start with a champagne reception followed by dinner, with the menu paired with superb fine wines from Longueville Manor’s wine cellar.

Speaking about the series Longueville Manor owner Malcolm Lewis said We are passionate about food here at Longueville and for that reason we are delighted to welcome these fantastic chefs to Jersey. I can’t wait to see what they create for our guests, each showcasing their region as well as working with Andrew on the fantastic ingredients we have on the island. As well as delicious dishes, our series will demonstrate Relais & Chateaux’s commitment to local cuisine across the association.’
