Eat Jersey 2020 chefs

We have a fantastic line-up of celebrated chefs joining us for the Eat Jersey Food Festival this year.


Daniel Clifford

Daniel Clifford spent the first 12 years of his career training in some of the best restaurants in the UK and France. Today he is widely regarded as one of the most inventive chefs of his generation.

Renowned for his modern British cooking, underpinned by an unmistakably French style, Daniel reinvents British classics using the finest local produce. He was awarded his first Michelin star in 2002 at Midsummer House, followed by his second in 2005. In addition, the restaurant holds five AA Rosettes. In 2014 Midsummer House was voted the Best Fine Dining Establishment in the UK. Daniel won Chef's Chef of the Year at the AA Awards in 2016 and he has twice won BBC’s Great British Menu.

In 2019 Kuba started a new concept, KUBAR. Kuba hopes to create a hub for the best food producers in the Cotswolds while preserving ancient techniques in modern cooking including wood fired and charcoal cooking.

Lee Westcott

Growing up in Hertfordshire, Chef Lee Westcott was drawn to the kitchen at the age of sixteen. After earning the trust of world-renowned London chef and restaurateur, Tom Aikens over four years, two of which as his Head Chef, Lee was then asked by Jason Atherton to oversee two of his restaurants in Hong Kong. 

He has also staged at two of the world’s leading restaurants – Noma (Copenhagen) and Per Se (New York). Most recently, Lee launched and directed Typing Room in London’s Town Hall Hotel for four years, to great critical acclaim. Lee was awarded a Michelin star in 2019.
