International Children’s Book Day is celebrated each year on or around 2nd April, Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday. In this, the fiftieth year, it continues to be a clarion call to children the world over to put down other distractions, pick up a book and enter the world of imagination and learning.
It’s International Chefs Day and we just wanted to give a big shout out to the Head Chefs at English Lakes. These guys amaze us every day with their hard work, creativity and dedication to their craft. We asked them about their favourite food and who inspired them to get into the kitchen. Their teams have a few interesting things to say too! Continue reading “English Lakes and Five Mighty Fine Chefs”→
When Jessica Struckman and Rachel Eaton were offered jobs in the kitchen at Waterhead Bar & Grill, it was meant to be a stop gap to fill the time before they set off on their travels. What they did not expect, was to be inspired to consider the life of a Chef at English Lakes as a new career path.
With guidance from Head Chef Nick, they are learning the art of food preparation – and loving it!
Colin Fox, Marketing manager here at English Lakes Hotels will fly out to Hong Kong and also visit Guangzhou at the end of this month to join a group of UK tourism professionals promoting their businesses at Destination Britain China.
This is my third promotional visit to the country having been on previous trips to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong in 2011 on a VisitBritain mission and an independent trip to Shanghai back in 2003, prior to the UK having Approved Destination Status. Whilst planning for the upcoming visit I have met some really interesting people who are also linked to China and tourism in one capacity or another and I thought it would be great to share some of our collective thoughts and experience. In this first blog I spoke to Bob Cartwright.
