Daniel Galmiche to join the Vineyard at Stockcross as executive chef

10 August 2009 by

French chef Daniel Galmiche is set to join the award-winning Vineyard at Stockcross in Berkshire as executive chef and head of food and beverage, Caterersearch can reveal.

The move follows the departure of the two-Michelin-starred chef John Campbell, who is leaving the Vineyard to join the Dorchester Collection's new country house estate and spa, Coworth Park.

Galmiche, who will take up his new role on 1 October, is leaving his role of executive chef at the five-star Forbury hotel in Reading, which earlier this year collapsed into administration. He joined the 24-bedroom property last autumn and has been overseeing its Cerise and Eden restaurants.

Galmiche was formerly executive head chef at Cliveden, also in Berkshire, where he gained a Michelin star at Waldo's restaurant in 2006. Prior to this he held Michelin stars at Harvey's in Bristol and at L'Ortolan near Reading.

Andrew McKenzie, managing director of The Vineyard and current Hotelier of the Year, said he was delighted about Galmiche's appointment.

"I was a regular at Harvey's and have known Daniel for years and always loved his food," he said.

"I have tried to work with him in the past but it didn't work out until now so I am delighted to have him on board and look forward to him moving the Vineyard's food offer onto even greater things."
