Northcote appoints two new Senior Sous Chefs
We are thrilled to announce the appointment of two talented senior sous chefs, Kirk Haworth, son of chef patron Nigel Haworth, and Aled Williams, Welsh champion on the Great British Menu. Kirk and Aled will be working alongside Nigel and head chef Lisa Allen, supporting the team and retaining the prestigious star that was awarded in 1995.
Aled Williams – Senior Sous Chef
Aled has am impressive background in the restaurant industry having worked in number of critically acclaimed restaurants throughout his career. In 2006 Aled won a scholarship with Gordon Ramsay and travelled round the globe gaining experience in some of the best restaurants in the world, including Bathers Pavilion in Sydney, Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck in Bray and Gordon Ramsay at The London, New York. In 2010 Aled showcased his talent to the nation and became champion of Great British Menu, which is where he met Lisa Allen. “Once I had visited Northcote I could tell it was a place of class and quality. I’m looking forward to working with likeminded people who are all focused on the same thing – the success of Northcote”.
Kirk Haworth – Senior Sous Chef
Kirk’s career began at the tender age of 16 with a scholarship under his father at Northcote. Not wanting to take the ‘easy’ route, Kirk left and went on to work in a number of Michelin-starred restaurants around the world including Vila Joya in Portugal and French Laundry, California. Kirk brings strong team skills to the job and is eagerly anticipating being part of the Northcote kitchen: “I look forward to being a part of such a close, consistent and strong team again. I believe that you only get what you put in and with the Northcote team it’s only ever 100%”.
