FOUR ICONS

ONE VISION I relish every change in the seasons, when the days are becoming noticeably longer and there is a little more warmth in the sun I become particularly excited about the following months and watching the hotels and grounds evolve and flourish. A quick glance out of the window from any of our ‘Iconic’ Hotels confirms that spring is well and truly on its way. At Cliveden the famous parterre is already an impressive carpet of colour and at Chewton Glen the greenhouses and kitchen gardens are brimming full of seedlings which will quickly sprout into tasty crops to be harvested for our guests to enjoy. The magical courtyard at The Lygon Arms’ comes into its own at this time of year and I can’t think of anywhere more idyllic to lose yourself in a ‘flat white’ and the Sunday papers before a gentle amble along Broadway High Street. We mustn’t forget leafy Chelsea and although 11 Cadogan Gardens can’t claim any gardens of its own the name alone suggests that it has an unusually tranquil outlook for an urban location. Come May, Chelsea is of course a mecca for gardening enthusiasts many of whom will be heading towards the Chelsea Flower Show for their annual dose of green-fingered inspiration. Pre or post show sustenance will shortly be available in ‘The Hans’ Bar & Grill’, our new all-day restaurant which opens up onto the suitably fashionable Pavilion Road. The internationally renowned British social season also comes alive in the spring and whether your passion be horses, tennis, cars, sailing, opera, books or antiques our small yet sophisticated collection of hotels are all perfectly located to provide a home away from home for you to base your spectating. This year we have the additional excitement of a Royal Wedding at Windsor Castle, which will undoubtedly provide a positive and triumphant focal point for the whole country. It would of course be wonderful to see you (again) over the coming days, weeks and months and as ever I hope that the following pages will inspire your next escape…

L

ocated a stone’s throw from Chelsea’s bustling Sloane Square, Hans’ Bar & Grill will offer an oasis of calm, nestled amongst the artisanal shops and food suppliers of the picturesque street. Head Chef Adam England (previously of Le Pont de la Tour) has created an all-day seasonal menu, rooted in British produce and underpinned by his classical cookery skills. It will also take inspiration from the restaurant’s namesake, Sir Hans Sloane, who was credited with bringing cocoa to the UK - with chocolate desserts and signature hot chocolate drinks taking centre stage.

Housed behind one of Pavilion Road’s charming Victorian mews facades, Hans’ Bar and Grill has been designed by Goddard Littlefair. Upon entrance to the 106-seat restaurant, guests will be met by a bright and airy space featuring white fluted timber walls offset with original yellow-stock brick, a pale oak parquet floor and sky light windows. Throughout the restaurant, seating will combine dark green banquettes and bespoke velvet chairs alongside white marble and black oak topped tables, brass detailing and feature lights, giving a Contemporaryclassic feel.

The intimate 20 seat bar will feature a unique drinks selection, whilst a private dining room, ‘The Curio’, inspired by Sloane’s love of adventure and discovery, will have the capacity to seat a further 16. Restaurant General Manager, Simon Smith (previously of Berners Tavern and Hakkasan) will oversee the wine list which will feature over 195 BINS with a focus on quirky bottles from around the world, whilst a concise list of classic cocktails designed by Salvatore Damiano, using British spirits, will include a twist on a Gin Sour and the British Mule.

T

he Kitchen is Chewton Glen’s foodie hub in the heart of the New Forest with a menu designed by celebrity chef James Martin. The adjoining cookery school has welcomed some of the top names in the culinary world who have stopped by for a day or two to share their skills. Having launched in April 2017, it has been an appetising year of all things sweet, savoury and everything else in between.

our cookery school, take a look at our range of summer classes as it’s just around the corner!

During the holidays, little cooks from the age of six take to the ovens before delighting their families with some of the creations they’ve made during classes. On top of that, we’ve seen gin lovers in their element whilst learning how to forage botanicals ready for distilling their very own gin, meat eaters mastering the art of steak in an evening class followed by dinner and others have been jammin’ up their weekly shop after spending a day on our ‘South American Street Food’ course.

is Chewton Glen’s

On the celebrity front, James Martin has been calling the kitchen ‘home’ on a monthly basis, spending a day teaching 24 chefs how to get happy with butter and master those much loved sweet treats, before serving up a four course meal around the chefs’ table for others in the evening. As well as Mr Martin, Head Chef Dan Doherty from London’s most iconic 24hr sky restaurant ‘Duck & Waffle’ helped chefs to learn rather egg-stravagant brunch recipes, before Daniele Turco put down the pan in The Gritti Palace restaurant in Venice and flew to us for a day of delicious Italian cooking. Chef Tom Kerridge, the brains behind the award winning Hand & Flowers in Marlow, is joining us in April to boss the ovens and teach 24 keen cooks in a morning and afternoon class, before welcoming a dozen for dinner in the evening.

FIVE MINUTES WITH...

JAMES MARTIN What dishes and styles of food are you loving at the moment? Food is very seasonal and trend focused. I’m very happy to see that Sous Vide is coming out of fashion and the good old simple application of heat to great ingredients is back. What is your favourite restaurant to visit right now? I can’t narrow it down to just one, so I’ll name a few. The first would be The Feathered Nest, it hasn’t got a Michelin Star, however I think it deserves two. The talent in the kitchen there is huge, as they make their own cured meats and fantastic game meat. Another few would be Lympstone Manor with Michael Caines, Bibendum in London, with Claude Bosi and finally Sat Bains in Nottingham. It’s in an unusual location underneath a flyover, but once you’re inside there’s no question that it’s one of the best restaurants in the world. If you could visit any country for their cuisine what country would it be? I’ve recently come back from the States and I think the myth about American cuisine is untrue, it’s no longer a country packed with pretzels and burgers. In the East, Japan has to be one of my favourites, it has a mystique with food like no other, the quality of ingredients and their respect for food is to be admired. What trends are you tracking? I tend not to follow trends, but prefer to go after quality ingredients. I like to work with suppliers to develop new techniques, when it comes to the food, it’s all to do with the quality and my aim is to always source the very best. You have a very loyal following, what’s your secret? I feel very privileged to do this job, when I was at Chewton I had never dreamed this would all be possible. The secret is doing and speaking what you believe in. There’s no magic potion, just make it about the food, not the person.

FOODIE

TWO-SHOES Nourishing yourself from the inside is where a healthy lifestyle begins and we’re reminded today more than ever before. Here’s our guide to making a wholesome start when it comes to what you eat, and our spa kitchens are a very good place to start...

W

e believe in living life to the full, by that we mean you should enjoy sipping on a dry vino whilst tucking into a shellfish entrée, and finishing your meal with indulgent flavours that will leave you feeling fulfilled. This attitude to feeding the mind, body and soul carries through to our healthier dining options in our awardwinning spas. The Spa Kitchen at both Cliveden House and The Lygon Arms as well as the Pool Bar at Chewton Glen cater perfectly for the morning. after those liberal dining celebrations.

IN CELEBRATION OF THE VEGETABLE Spa Director of the Iconic family Kerry Hudson has a few top tips when it comes to nourishing the body this year, to give you a different approach to ways in which you can make healthier choices that will ensure you don’t feel like you are lacking in nutrients!

The obsessive calorie counting, weighing and measuring is officially out of fashion, and “lifestyling” with a focus on overall eating patterns and whole-life wellness, is in. Vegetables have graduated from a sidekick to the main meaty event. A luxe treatment has been given to veggies and now they are taking centre stage. With more and more compelling vegan and vegetarian options on the menu, there has never been a better time to be, or try to become, a vegetable lover.

BRAVE UP TO FAT

If you haven’t been offered a smashedavocado dish yet this year you must be living in a cave! Fat used to be perceived as the enemy but it seems now we are having second thoughts about whether the fat content should really be something to be afraid of. With plant based fats such as nuts, avocados and oily fishes containing triple the nutrients of their sibling food groups,

GET SWEET SMART

Refined sugar is a sly member of the food world. As it sneaks its way into energy bars and low fat dairy products, in particular flavoured yoghurts, it’s easy to go unnoticed in attempt to make

8

healthier choices. We aim to build our menus with natural sugars from fresh fruit, vegetables and natural fructose sugars such as honey.

MAKE IT SUSTAINABLE

Today we are becoming even more conscious with the longevity of our ingredients, and making changes and choices that increase the life of produce. More and more people understand that their individual health is integrally linked with the health of our planet, and they are taking steps to eat greener by eating more plant based meals, choosing sustainable fish, poultry and meats, and reducing waste. We love to source locally, Chewton Glen in particular is a hub of home-grown and locally sourced foodie activity, where we have over 70 working bee hives that provide us with the yummy sweet sugars and an abundance of homegrown produce sprouting up from our vegetable beds.

FEEL ALIVE!

We know that the good bacteria in our guts are not only key to good digestive health but to overall wellness too. These probiotic-rich fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi, yogurt and kefir are back on the scene. There are more exciting varieties of these “living” foods available in your day-to-day supermarket.

COLLAGEN CONVERSATION

Collagen is the most plentiful protein in the human body, and it’s also what makes skin look smooth and supple. With such a small quantity doing such a lot of good, we’re definitely saying yes to it and ensuring that the menus in our Spa Kitchens are packed with this protein as it is so beneficial for your skin, hair and overall wellbeing.

reakfast is taken in that lovely room and it was from there that I trotted back to the spa for a Sarah Chapman treatment, probably the best facial I have ever had, with much specialist massage – flicking, pinching, stroking, patting – to lift the visor and walk out looking, if briefly, like Keeler in her prime.” – Fiona Duncan embarked on her Cliveden Spa experience back in August, recently after the relaunch. Shortly after, this Zen destination was awarded the ‘best new or back on the scene luxury spa’ by Condé Nast Johansens, 2018 UK & Ireland Awards for Excellence. The Cliveden Spa is an evergreen gem, perfect for cosying up in one of the seven treatment rooms or relax by the indoor pool during the cooler months, although with the summer on its way, you might prefer to find a spot poolside of the impressive outdoor pool and its accompanying hot tubs. Inhale the aroma of fresh roses and other flowers growing before experiencing luxury products during a treatment inspired and infused with these botanicals from the horticultural nest.

OLD ROOTS

NEW ROUTES Free standing baths that look onto the picturesque valley packed with wildlife, a wraparound balcony dotted with hot tubs and an impressive upstairs in both wings of this new treetop abode. Discover why The Yews is where you’ll want to nestle in for your next staycation.

T

he Yews is the latest and biggest branch to sprout in our Hampshire home. The newest apartment to launch nestling in the New Forest foliage offers a wraparound balcony, hot tubs and classical marble bathrooms. The unveiling of the rust-toned exteriors of ‘The Yews’ back in October was complimented by its neighbouring trees and the array of celestial autumnal leaves. Similarly to the other twelve treetop abodes, The Yews is perched on stilts at the near side of the valley, yet it peeps through the dense trees and surrounding nature that its residents will forget where they are during a hideaway. With all of nature’s beauty, the purpose of this impressive nest is to give its inhabitants a sense of ultimate relaxation. For the little ones, it’s a memory that will stick. From battling on the interactive Pac Man gaming table, to peering into the telescope and being in awe of the glistening ebony night sky, a stay in a treehouse will charm everyone in one way or another. Adults can experience a unique opportunity to break away from the bustle of everyday life, wake up to the sound of birds and drift off to the low hoots of a nearby owl. Immersing yourself in the present moment is a natural feeling when staying in one of our Treehouses.
