The Idle Rocks is delighted to announce a new culinary future to be led by the arrival of Head Chef, Dorian Janmaat.
The award winning chef returns to his home county of Cornwall, following eight years honing his craft at Raymond Blanc’s 2 Michelin-starred Le Manoir aux Quat‘Saisons. For the past three years Dorian has been Head Chef at this pinnacle of the British restaurant scene.
Originating from Penzance, Dorian says, “I am really looking forward to bringing all that I have learnt from Gary Jones, Executive Head Chef and Raymond, one of the industries greatest mentors, back to the county I grew up in. My ambition is to capture the local surroundings with each plate simple, pure and straight from the source. I’ll be building a new brigade in St Mawes and welcome interest from passionate and enthusiastic chefs interested in joining me”.
The hotel owner, David Richards, added “We believe that there is a real appetite for food produced from the finest local ingredients, and in Cornwall we have the finest produce anywhere. We are excited to have the brilliance of Dorian in our kitchen who can turn them into incredible dishes for our guests”
Dorian will take over as Head Chef when the hotel re-opens in February 2020, following a winter refurbishment.
