Granary Grill, Weston Park Recruiting New Chefs

Granary Grill Sous Chef Dan Smith

Granary Grill Sous Chef Dan Smith

The latest arrival to the Granary Grill’s team at Weston Park is
set to get the taste buds racing for diners this summer.

Dan Smith from Wolverhampton has joined the recently opened, bar
and restaurant, as the new Junior Sous Chef, working directly under
the leadership of Weston Park’s head chef, Guy Day.

The 22 year-olds first task has been creating a selection of new
dishes for the menu, reflecting the essence of summer eating
incorporating seasonal favourites supported by local producers.

The passionate chef is no stranger to a challenge, inspired by
his grandmother’s culinary skills, Dan completed his training at
Birmingham College of Food before qualifying in butchery under
renowned Codsall butcher, Alan Bennett.

Dan brings over six years of expertise to the Granary Grill
having worked in a variety of kitchens across the Midlands before
progressing to the Michelin starred, Yorke Arms, restaurant with
rooms in Harrogate.

In 2006 Dan was crowned first place at the Young Chef of the
Year awards, organised by MARCHE, which recognise excellence in the
hospitality and leisure industry across the Midlands.

Speaking of his new role Dan said: “I am thrilled to be part of
the Granary Grill team. “I believe in not over complicating
dishes, which fits perfectly with the restaurants ethos for easy
eating and locally produced food, simply cooked.

“Guy is an excellent mentor allowing me to express my
creativity. I am particularly proud of the Oriental Style Grilled
Local Pork Belly with Tiger Prawns and Bok Choi and I am looking
forward to feedback from customers.”

The new summer menu offers a light fresh taste for diners and
includes grilled sardines, potted prawns in a lemon and herb
butter, salmon nicoise salad, fresh strawberry savarin with
strawberry soup and summer fruit crumble with lavender ice

Head Chef, Guy Day, added: “We are very pleased with the early
success of the Granary Grill and delighted to have Dan on board.
His next challenge will be developing signature dishes to
further enhance our diners choices and he is already working on the
autumn menu.”

The Granary Grill is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
