There’s a new chef in town… errr well village

We’ve exciting news, final arrangements are in place for a new head chef to take the helm at Philleigh Way! This is big news in more ways than one, Rupert Cooper is an ex-professional rugby player and certainly no shrinking violet when it comes to cooking. Having played most of his professional rugby for Nottingham, Rupert played his final season at the Cornish Pirates before injury forced him to retire.  Unlike many professional sportsmen this was the moment Rupert had been waiting for, an opportunity to fulfill a lifelong ambition to pursue a career in food.  Since retiring from rugby, Rupert has cooked at Sat Bains in Nottingham, Paul Ainsworth’s No.6 and Rick Stein’s in Padstow. You can hear more about Rupert and his plans for Philleigh Way on Radio Cornwall on 20th December at 4:10pm.

In the meantime, we’re also pleased to say that gift vouchers will be back on sale from 5pm on Monday 17th December, giving you enough time to receive them before Christmas Day. A selection of established and new courses for 2019 will also go live at the same time.  Don’t worry we’ll be sending you a reminder on the day just in case you forget, together with information about the exciting new courses Rupert will be running.
