Possibly the best of Malvern's cuisine... A little over two years ago Matt Foley (aged 18) started work at Pepper & Oz as head pot washer. Since then he's been to music college and trained under Malvern's finest... We interview the new Chef at Pepper & Oz, Matt Foley, who at 21 takes over the reins. He explains how his training under Malvern's top chefs has led to his new menus combining the best of his learning to date:

Q: You're very young to take over the kitchen in such a renowned restaurant, how did it feel to be given the responsibility? Matt: I felt a mixture of being flattered, excited and terrified in one emotional cocktail, but having worked for many of Malvern's top chef's I felt ready for the challenge. Q: So what exactly have you learnt from each? Matt: Each is passionate about what they do and the main points I've learnt from each are summarised below.

When people enjoy eating here, they are appreciating my ideas and ideals" Kevin Ratcliffe, the original Pepper & Oz, The Brasserie's Head Chef; "The key to great dishes is the freshness and quality of ingredients" Salvatore Zero, former Head Chef; "When dishes look great they open the taste buds - people eat with their eyes as well as their mouths" Chris Morgan, award winning Head Chef, The Cotford Hotel "Never forget the importance of texture in intensifying flavour" Mike Weir, award winning Head Chef, The Plough & Harrow, Guarlford The singing Chef - multi-talented Matt!
