Jon Fell MCGC
Holder of the World Record Largest Scotch Egg 2014, Head Chef at the reimagined Rosehill Theatre Restaurant, The Green Room.
After graduating from Loughborough Catering College in 1990 I spent my early years in large hotels in Croydon and Gloucestershire. In March 2003 I moved to Cumbria, working for the likes of the Frost-Penningtons at Muncaster Castle, where my passion for the food producers, produce and all things Cumbria and Its food began.
I’m a Seafood chef on the Simply Good Food TV app, my Cookery demonstrations and judging takes me around the country.
The Green Room and the provision of all food and drink at Rosehill Theatre aims to create a centre of excellence in hospitality. This is run in association with the catering school at neighbouring Lakes College, providing apprenticeships, work experience and employment for students and graduates; developing confidence, presentation and skills alongside creative and experienced professionals.
Seafood is my absolute passion, the West coast offers some of the best, Local and seasonality seafood, and these are key elements in my culinary style. Teaching and mentoring young chefs of the future has become a huge part of what I do.
Classic British food prepared with imagination and quality ingredients are central to our purpose with these, and associated services, sourced wherever possible from the wealth of local suppliers.
