Andrew Brownsword Hotels is celebrating following the announcement that Chris Simpson of Gidleigh Park has been awarded a Michelin star, following the release of the Michelin Guide 2019.
Awarded to Chris in person at the prestigious ceremony held on Monday 1 October at the BFI IMAX cinema in Waterloo, the guide inspectors commented that Chris “has made a confident start at this beautiful hotel”.
Chris Simpson commented, “I’m absolutely delighted to have been awarded a Michelin star. Whilst in the past I have celebrated many times, leading kitchens to win both one and two stars, this is the first time I’ve been awarded a star for my own kitchen and it is a huge honour. As well as congratulating all the kitchen team, whose dedication and continued efforts have delivered this accolade, I would also like to thank everyone at Gidleigh Park who all play their part in creating a brilliant experience for all of our guests”.
Stephanie Hocking, CEO Andrew Brownsword Hotels, comments, “Huge congratulations to Chris and his team on being awarded a Michelin star, which is fantastic recognition for his outstanding cooking. Having been long been aware of Chris’s exceptional talent, we’re delighted he has settled in so well at Gidleigh Park and we look forward to exciting times ahead, as he continues to flourish”.
