Adam Harper joins Baslow's Cavendish hotel as head chef

The Cavendish hotel on the Chatsworth Estate has appointed Adam Harper as head chef.

Harper joins the 28-bedroom hotel in Baslow, Derbyshire, from the same role at Rowley's restaurant, also in Baslow.

A Derby University hospitality graduate, Harper has worked through the kitchen ranks from a commis chef position at the one-Michelin-starred Fischer's restaurant in Baslow, to a chef de partie role at the French at the Midland hotel in Manchester.

Philip Joseph, general manager of the Cavendish hotel, said: "We're delighted Adam has agreed to join our team. I know his cooking well plus he has the know-how of managing a busy kitchen at full pace. This will take The Cavendish to new heights."

Harper added: "This is exactly the opportunity I have been working up to. My experience of classical cooking with modern techniques and innovation together with the more relaxed, informal Rowley's is a perfect fit. With the Cavendish's two restaurants, the Chef's table and private dining the potential is huge. Plus, the added bonus of access to the fantastic produce from the Chatsworth Estate.

"I shall bring my own style of cooking but it'll be a gentle introduction; maybe two or three new dishes a week. I love the chef diner interaction and, as we're in the game season as well as the great autumn harvest, cooking for the chef's table will really showcase this brilliant time of year."
