Wood Norton appoints Kieran Hunt as head chef

The Wood Norton in Worcestershire has appointed Kieran Hunt as head chef.

It is the first head chef position for Hunt, who joins with more than 10 years' experience including training under Andre Garrett.

Hunt and his team of sous chefs have already introduced a new menu offering British and French cuisine.

He said: "I am extremely excited about my new position at the Wood Norton, and over the past few weeks have really enjoyed experimenting with my team to create different tastes, flavours and dishes that have the real wow factor.

"To date these creations have been well received by all guests, with dishes such as scallops with purple cauliflower, rabbit with smoked broccoli and lemon sole with honey and poppy seed being among the most popular."

General manager of the Wood Norton, Steve Sweeny, added: "Kieran is by far one of the most passionate and enthusiastic head chefs we have had on board here at the Wood Norton.

"Both he and his team have so much pride, care and precision when it comes to cooking and creating different menu options. As a result he has taken the hotel's fine dining experience to the next level."

Wood Norton is owned by Wrigop.
