Gisborough Hall’s head chef, Jason Moore, is hosting a special one-off ‘Chef’s Table’ event this month.
Jason, who has cooked for many dignitaries and celebrities throughout his career, will be sharing his tips for sourcing and preparing the best local food at Malton Cookery School on March 18th. Guests will enjoy a champagne and canapés reception followed by dinner served by Jason at the chef’s table.
Jason Moore, from Guisborough, returned to Gisborough Hall as head chef in 2014, having travelled around the UK and Europe working at a variety of locations and assisting with Yorkshire-based Provenance Inns’ gastro-pub openings around North Yorkshire. Jason has cooked for many VIPs including members of the Royal Family, MPs and footballers and originally joined Gisborough Hall in 2008.
He is also well known for his appearances at shows and exhibitions including the Harrogate Flower Show, York Festival of Food and Drink, the Great Yorkshire Show and the Scarborough Food Fair.
Jason said: “My number one aim when preparing food in Chaloner’s Restaurant and the G Bar and Bistro at Gisborough Hall is to creatively use local and seasonal ingredients wherever possible. North East England and Yorkshire is my larder for my locally inspired menus. I always respect what is best from our local area and reflect our owner Lord Gisborough’s desire to source local ingredients and support local farmers. At this event in Malton I’ll be offering a true British style with modern tweaks and surprises.”
Last year Gisborough Hall unveiled its new rooms and suites following a £400,000 investment, and is home to two AA Rosette restaurant ‘Chaloner’s’, a Revival Zone spa, 71 bedrooms and ‘G’ Bar and Bistro, as well as a ballroom, conservatory and events’ spaces and its traditional drawing room and inner hall.
Gisborough Hall dates back to 1857 and the grade II-listed country house was fully restored in 2002 following an investment of over £10 million by the Gisborough family, who privately own the hotel itself. The hotel is now also a Macdonald Associate hotel.
The country hall now employs a team of 105 local people across the hotel, a number which has steadily increased in the last year thanks to the refurbishment as afternoon teas, corporate events and dinners and international tourism all continue to thrive.
At the start of 2016, Gisborough Hall was named as one of the best hotels in the North East and North Yorkshire by guests, picking up ‘Top Rated Hotel’ status by Laterooms.com’s Simply the Guest Awards 2016.
Other accolades for Gisborough Hall include a Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards 2015 finalist and a ‘Gold’ award holder in the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
The event at Malton Cookery School is £65 per person and takes place at 7.30pm on Friday March 18th. For details visit http://www.maltoncookeryschool.co.uk/
