The British Culinary Federation enjoyed an excellent Chefs’ Club Lunch on Monday 16th October at Swinfen Hall Hotel in the Lichfield district of Staffordshire. Built in 1757, this 18th century Country Mansion House sits in wonderful grounds with beautifully manicured gardens.

Sincere thanks to Executive Chef Ryan Shilton and his brigade for a superb 5-course lunch and to the front-of-house team for their very professional, friendly and efficient service.  BCF President Peter Griffiths acknowledged both teams in the Santé de Chef and thanked members for attending and commented on how popular the Chefs’ Club Lunches have become.

 Following a Champagne reception, guests enjoyed the following menu accompanied by a superb selection of wines.
