Taste of the Garden by Paul Leonard

Dates – 28th August – 30th September 2017 (Excludes Mondays)

A special 6 course tasting menu designed with elements within every dish that have either been grown in our Kitchen garden or reared on the Bolton Abbey Estate. 

The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa, Bolton Abbey are delighted to introduce Paul Leonard as Head Chef of our ‘Burlington Restaurant’.

Paul is an excellent chef with an outstanding background and joined last month from the renowned, Michelin-starred Scottish hotel, Isle of Eriska, where he was Head Chef for two years. Previously, he was Sous Chef at Andrew Fairlie, Gleneagles, one of Britain’s most elite hotel restaurants, with two Michelin stars and 4 AA rosettes.

Paul is especially passionate about local produce, including fresh, home-grown fruit and vegetables and foraging. He cites the kitchen gardener at L’Enclume, Ken Holland, as being particularly inspirational. As a result of their work together, Paul has taken great interest in the Kitchen Garden here at Bolton Abbey and to mark his arrival has designed a special ‘Taste of the Garden’ menu for diners to enjoy throughout the month of September.

This 6 course tasting menu will include an element from either the Kitchen Garden or the Bolton Abbey estate within each course giving diners a fine dining experience as well as an opportunity to taste Pauls culinary excellence first hand and sample our amazing home grown produce.
