Trump Turnberry appoints Callum Dow as executive chef

The Trump Turnberry Hotel has appointed Callum Dow as the site's new executive chef.

Dow joined the Ayrshire hotel in 2017 as chef de cuisine before being quickly promoted to executive sous within the space of six months. He will now oversee the dining portfolio across Trump Turnberry's offerings, including the 1906 restaurant, the Grand Tea Lounge & Bar, the Duel in the Sun, the Lighthouse Halfway House and the Chef's Table.

He will bring 17 years of experience to the role, including two years as executive head chef at Balbirnie House, a year as head chef at restaurant Gleneagles Deseo and time at the one-Michelin-starred Longueville Manor in Jersey.

He said: "I am extremely honoured to be heading up the kitchens at one of the most iconic hotels in Scotland. I had to pinch myself when I was approached to take the reins as executive head chef.

"I always try and be at the top of my game and you don't get better than Trump Turnberry.

"We are a very young and new team within the kitchens and laying the foundations of what is going to be a very exciting time at the hotel. Every day is different and we push ourselves to constantly evolve and improve things."

Ralph Porciani, general manager at Trump Turnberry, added: "Callum is an integral part of our family here at Trump Turnberry.

"He is an exciting talent whose passion and energy for delivering freshly prepared, high-quality food will continue to build the hotel's reputation for offering a first-class dining experience to anyone who comes through our doors."
