AN ICONIC

AUTUMN Welcome to our new-look newsletter, which is bigger and better than ever before, simply because we have so much more news to share with you! Our family continues to grow, and I am excited to share that Chewton Glen and Cliveden have two new siblings; one in super-stylish Chelsea, just off Sloane Square and the other in the Cotswolds right on the main street of the idyllic chocolate box village of Broadway. In many respects these ‘Iconic’ hotels couldn’t be more different, however there is one common theme that we are immensely proud of and that is our teams. Linked by our shared ‘DNA’ we are confident that by continually recruiting people with hospitality in their hearts, the welcome you will find and the experience you will enjoy is quite simply exceptional. For the past year the old hard-hat and high ‘vis’ have been part of my daily wardrobe as we have been frenetic across the collection redesigning, restoring and refurbishing. The Lygon Arms is now transformed with every inch of this 16th century coaching inn refreshed. Cliveden’s new Spa is complete and this new facility in the infamous walled garden is certainly the ‘icing on the cake’. Back at Chewton Glen classes at the James Martin Cookery School are selling like hot-cakes and another super Treehouse has appeared in the woods. In London, 11 Cadogan Gardens certainly isn’t missing out on the action and in spring 2018 we will unveil an appealing new restaurant concept and over the winter, tweaks and enhancements will be made to the bedrooms and lounges. We sincerely hope that you approve of what we have been up to and that the following pages will capture your imagination and provide countless reasons for you to come and see us again to celebrate, to indulge, to escape, to learn, to create, to meet or simply to relax.

BACK TO HIS ROOTS...

V

enetian Chef Daniele Turco recently crossed borders from the iconic Gritti Palace to teach us a wealth of Italian cookery skills, Ben Tish is stopping by for a day to help chefs ‘up their game’ when it comes to cooking British game dishes and Duck and Waffle’s much loved Dan Doherty is venturing down in December. These are just a few of the big characters proving that The Kitchen and cookery school is a beacon for culinary delights. Cookery classes really are the flavour of the moment, and with classes for little ones from the age of 8, anyone and everyone will find something to be inspired by in The Kitchen. It’s a hub of foodie activity in the New Forest, evolving into one of the most contemporary yet mindful places to spend an entire day. With over 50 unique specially designed cookery course dates featuring artisanal themes, you can pick up skills that will last a lifetime and create tastes to take home to your loved ones.

THE ULTIMATE DINNER PARTY Gather colleagues, family or friends and visit The Kitchen for a private chef experience. Up to twelve can enjoy dinner cooked in front of them in the cookery school.

The perfect celebration! From £75 per person, £350 room hire based on eight to twelve people around the table. To book contact sales@chewtonglen.com

CHEF JAMES MARTIN started his fruitful career at ‘The Glen’ as he likes to call it, and he’s been a key player in the new culinary venture on the 130 acre estate. James brings his cookery skills to The Kitchen once a month, with a day in the school he shares his love of butter with a bunch of twelve and teaches them all he knows. Keen chefs have been running their own Saturday Kitchen on all days of the week, creating dishes like Scallop Ravioli and Poulet Sauté from scratch and finishing with a Strawberry Roulade. James’ last session of the day is finished with a delicious dinner, wine and conversation for twelve. James is in The Kitchen monthly, check the website for future dates...

T

he most appetising addition to Broadway comes in the form of our 16th century coaching inn. Since the transformation of The Lygon Arms those familiar with this Cotswold born gem won’t see a lot of difference to the historic building from the outside, but inside you will find a collection of menus that will satisfy every occasion, taste bud, generation and mood. The Lygon Bar & Grill is serving up deluxe game dishes from the grill for those special occasions where indulgence is desired. If you’re longing for a completely ‘off-duty’ staycation and want to spend your time strolling amongst the surrounding landscape, the Lygon Lounges are destined to host any muddy wellie boots and mutts!

FROM THE CHEF’S

COOKBOOK André Garrett, Executive Head Chef, from the award-winning André Garrett Restaurant at Cliveden House provides us with his favourite autumn dish.

INGREDIENTS - SERVES 4 4 whole Bresse pigeons, feathered and intact, rapeseed oil, 100g duck fat, 100g salted butter, 1 clove garlic, 2 sprigs thyme Black pudding purée 1 boudin noir (French black pudding from specialty shops), 20ml apple vinegar, 30ml double cream, salt and pepper Liver canapé Cleaned livers and hearts from birds, 50g foie gras, 1 small baguette, 1 sprig thyme, splash of Armagnac, 20g salted butter Sauce 40g chopped carrot, 40g chopped shallot, 40g chopped celery, 1 clove garlic, 3 sprigs thyme, 1 pinch coriander seeds, 1 bay leaf, 40ml Madeira, 400ml good veal stock, carcasses from the roasted pigeons

ROASTED BRESSE PIGEON, BLACK PUDDING PURÉE AND LIVER CANAPÉ Ask your butcher to pluck and clean your pigeons. When plucked, singe the birds lightly with a blow torch (if available) to take away any unwanted feathers. Debone the legs, wings, wishbone and remove the innards, keep the hearts and livers for the toast. Tie the bird for roasting, heat a large frying pan with a little oil, season the birds inside and out, sear the birds slowly all over being careful to not over cook the breast meat, pay particular attention to the back and sides, add the salted butter, crushed garlic and thyme and baste the birds gently as they cook in the butter. Move to a pre heated oven on 160˚C and turn every 2 minutes, they will take about 10 minutes to cook to a nice pink. Test the firmness of the flesh with your fingers, the meat should be firm but bounce back easily, take out of the pan and rest on a tray in a warm place. Take off the breasts and chop the bones up for the sauce. Heat the duck fat to melt and add the legs, allow to confit slowly on a very low heat, being aware not to boil. These will take about an hour to confit, let the legs rest and cool in the pan, remove and to reheat, crisp the legs in a small non stick pan in the oven at 160˚C for about 10 minutes, season and serve. Black pudding purée Heat the vinegar and cream. Skin and chop the black pudding, add to the blender, pour in the

vinegar and cream and blend to a smooth paste, season to taste and take out, keep warm for service.

We enjoyed as

FAULTLESS a lunch as you could wish for. Forget that Profumo business: the real scandal here is that Cliveden hasn’t won a Michelin star.

THE TIMES MAGAZINE 2017

Liver canapé Chop the hearts, livers and foie gras together, heat a small frying pan over a medium heat, add the butter and let it foam, add the liver mix and sauté fast. Season and add the chopped thyme, finally add the Armagnac, taste and correct if necessary. Slice a piece of baguette and toast, spread the liver mix over the baguette slice when ready to serve. This will sit on top of the dish. Sauce In a large pan roast the vegetables until coloured, add the spice, thyme and the chopped carcasses and trimmings, deglaze with a little water and reduce and glaze the bones over, when dry add the Madeira and glaze again, add the stock, bring to the boil, skim and turn down the heat, let this simmer gently for an hour or so to extract all the flavours, strain to a smaller pan and reduce to consistency needed to coat the back of a spoon, season to taste and finally strain again. Serve to your guests and enjoy!

ANDRÉ’S DOVER SOLE

C

hef André Garrett has been at Cliveden House for four years. He is a classically trained and highly acclaimed Head Chef with over 20 years experience working within some of the best restaurants in and around London. His Dover Sole dish has become a bit of a trademark amongst many exquisite dishes he designs in the André Garrett Restaurant. André explains that to achieve this dish you must make sure it’s cooked but not overdone as this immediately spoils any type of fish dish. To ensure it’s cooked perfectly pushing a cocktail stick into the flesh is a good test, if you can pull it out easily then you’re good to go.

CHEWTON GLEN’S FAMOUS SOUFFLÉ

T

he Chewton Glen Twice-Baked Cheese Soufflé has become a real hero, there’s something about its fluffy texture that once pulled away, reveals a heart of molten glory, enveloped by overflowing cheese. The brains behind the long-standing golden treat is Executive Head Chef Luke Matthews who says “a little salt and pepper before you bake enlivens the warming Emmental flavours and really awakes your taste buds”. If you want to learn how to create this dish in the comfort of your own home, The Kitchen hosts a ‘Recreate Chewton Glen Classics’ cookery course which will show you how.

DELIGHT IN DESSERTS AT THE LYGON

O

n a blustery and chilly day in the Cotswolds we know there will be nothing better than cosying up by an open fireplace and tucking into something decadent and sweet to warm your insides. Chef Ales Maurer from The Lygon Arms serves up a molten sticky date and toffee pudding with a fresh vanilla ice cream to swirl in amongst the gooey glory. The chef’s tip for anyone that wants to give something similar a go is that you need to be clever with the amount of self-raising flour used, you want it to be spongy and stand tall without being too bouncy!

T

he Cliveden Spa has a rich heritage and history.

During a restorative window of time, we have beautifully redesigned this space to host guests as they experience the highest levels of service, the pinnacle of spa treatments and therapies accompanied with world-class facilities and seamless hospitality. Enveloped by tumbling scented roses and lavender, you will find an oasis nestled behind the historic brick walls in the garden.

In the middle of the day The Spa Kitchen is the perfect pocket that overlooks the garden where you can nourish your insides with a healthy and nutritious menu of seasonal dishes and light bites to inspire a healthy way of life. The most unique appeal of The Cliveden Spa starts with two exciting first time partnerships with British facialist Sarah Chapman and OSKIA skincare. Ensuring we fly the flag for British brands is what derives our patriotic values. We are also delighted to announce the launch of Cliveden’s own body range. The fragrances and attributes of the new Cliveden range have been inspired by two of Cliveden’s most famous ladies, the first being Nancy Astor and the second being Anna Maria, lover of the second Duke of Buckingham, who built Cliveden. We’re pleased to give you the opportunity to enjoy a little more retail therapy in the spa, with a selection of products from Varley, Ultimate Library, BKR, Love Brand, Daisy Jewellery, Lucas Hugh, Manuka, Heidi Klein and Castore.

SEASONAL

TOP TIP By Sarah Chapman ‘Seasonal change can affect your skin in many ways, summer tans fade to reveal dull patchy uneven skin, central heating dehydrates and cold weather can sensitise. This is the perfect time for a clinical facial using a micropeel to remove dead cells, brighten and smooth the skin creating the perfect base for an intense hydration infusion.’

F

eeling good isn’t just about indulging in nice things, it’s about you restoring your mind, body and soul once in a while. Tranquil spaces and invigorating experiences help those looking to unplug, unwind and relax for a sense of purity. The Treehouses are the perfect place to turn over a new leaf as you refresh and renew for a new year. The exclusive ‘Treetox’ package at Chewton Glen has been designed to do just that. With juicing, Yoga, Nordic Walking and spa treatments included in this package, the tree tops are where you’ll be able to escape the stresses of life and cleanse your body and mind in the heart of the New Forest.

We are being reminded repeatedly in today’s fast paced way of life that ‘unplugging’ is a necessary deed to enable one to re-engage with life at its best which is happening right in front of you. Solitude is much easier to find when you shut off the noise and the screens. As idyllic as this all may sound, we understand that the demands of life make it very hard to just ‘switch off’, here’s a little helping hand where you can nestle in the heart of nature. The ‘Digital Detox’ package at Chewton Glen will help you to escape the stresses of modern life. We’ll take your tech away if you wish giving you the chance to simply be.

KERRY HUDSON, SPA DIRECTOR SHARES HER TOP TIPS FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE 1. Keep hydrated - Water makes up two-thirds of the body and performs a number of functions, such as a temperature regulator and a body detoxifier. Maintaining hydration can have a profound influence on our vitality and energy levels, including mental alertness. 2. Eat mindfully - Avoid eating when distracted, eat more slowly, and take the time to taste food properly. One particular thing to focus on is chewing your food thoroughly, not only does this help us savour food, it also assists the digestive process. 3. Get moving - Your body loves nothing more than to get the blood pumping

around it. Don’t strain yourself, just do what feels right for you. 4. Sleep on it - Get at least seven and a half hours of sleep every night. This is the only time our bodies have to regenerate and heal. If sleep is an issue, you can look into calming herbs or just a nice warm cup of chamomile or fresh mint tea before bed may also do the trick. 5.
