Nick Edgar Head Chef at The Ryebeck

Our Head Chef, Nick Edgar, has cooked at the highest level for his entire career. From an early age Nick worked his way up through the ranks of one of the most famous kitchens in the country, 2 Michelin starred Le Manoir aux Quat’Saison, under the guidance and tutillage of the one and only Raymond Blanc.

He then took his first head chef role at The Samling in Ambleside and gained a star of his  very own after just 9 months in the job whilst getting himself voted Cumbria Life Chef of the Year along the way…

After spending a year out with his young family, Nick comes to the Ryebeck wanting to cook a different style of food. Food with a story, food with a heart.

“Over the past year I’ve reinvented myself and I like to think I’m showing a new maturity and confidence in my food. Along the way I’ve had to retrain myself, especially as I’ve never done this style of food before but it’s such an exciting journey. I have a fantastic talented team in place and we can’t wait to see where we end up!”’
