The Celtic Manor Resort has appointed Michelin-starred chef Richard Davies to take charge of its new fine dining restaurant.
Epicure by Richard Davies will open on Saturday 13th February and promises a memorable and exciting, modern restaurant experience for diners.
Having worked along side celebrities such as Gordon Ramsay in London, Richard then won coveted Michelin stars of his own in his first head chef posts at Sawyards in West Sussex and the Manor House at Castle Combe, near Bath.
Richard said: “It feels like coming home and I’m exciting about the challenge of creating and developing a new fine dining experience for Celtic Manor.
“I like to choose the best quality ingredients –local where possible – and use modern techniques to create a memorable and exciting dining experience for guests.”
The word epicure means a person with refined taste who takes particular pleasure in fine food and drink, and that is exactly the experience the resort wants to create at the new restaurant.
Richard Davies has also represented Wales three times on the national TV channel, the BBC on a popular culinary show ‘Great British Menu’ and won by making it all the way to the famous banquet in 2013 with his winning dessert ‘strawberries and cream’, which was served at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of Comic Relief Charity. The dish has been adapted for his brand new menu at Epicure by Richard Davies.
The appointment of Richard, who is originally from Bridgend in South Wales, is another exciting development as Celtic Manor continues to reinvigorate its culinary and gastronmic offering to hotel residents and local diners.
