Join us in the Fisher & Paykel/ Chewton Glen demonstration kitchen across the weekend where they’ll be cooking up a storm!

Heading up the kitchen is award-winning chef, Harbour Hotels’ Chef Patron Alex Aitken, one of the most renowned seafood chefs in the country who has an incomparable passion and respect for seafood. Having spent twenty five years cooking within the New Forest, including many years running his own Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Poussin in Brockenhurst, Hampshire, Alex has championed simple, seasonal and local produce from the very beginning.

In 2010 Alex joined the Harbour Hotels Group to head up its Jetty restaurant concept. With the flagship Jetty restaurant in Mudeford, Dorset, having established itself as the country’s number one seafood restaurant (recently awarded the coveted title of the ‘UK’s best seafood restaurant’) The Jetty concept now stretches from Devon to Sussex, landing in Southampton this year.

Watch, learn and taste as some of the region’s top chefs demonstrate their cooking skills and techniques using the finest local ingredients! There will be everything from fish filleting skills, herb crusted cod, scallops, seafood paella, lobster and oyster masterclasses from The Oyster Lady & Blue Marine Foundation.
