Chef Lee Skeet at Phileigh Way
To tantilise your taste buds during the long winter months, Philleigh Way Cookery School have lined up a series of Supper Clubs with guest chef, Devon born Lee Skeet. Lee trained at Gordon Ramsay at Claridges, reaching the role of sous chef, before moving on to Marcus Wareing's two Michelin starred restaurant at The Berkeley. Following a stint abroad in Germany, working with Michelin starred Nuno Mendes, two Michelin starred Tim Raue and Matthias Schmidt, and three Michelin starred Juan Amador on a series of popup events, Lee returned to London as Sous Chef at Restaurant Tom Aikens.
After travelling around Asia and Australia for a number of months, Lee again returned to London as Sous Chef at Michelin starred Hedone, eventually achieving the role of Head Chef. During this time the restaurant was voted the seventh best in the UK, and the 60th best in the world.
After leaving Hedone Lee ran a successful series of popup restaurants and residencies around London, which led to him being shortlisted for chef of the year at the Young British Foodie Awards- the only chef without a permanent restaurant to be included on the list. He's now returned to the South West with the intention of opening his first restaurant in St Ives, Cornwall.
The Supper Clubs will be taking place on Saturday 19th November and Friday 9th December. Tickets are limited, we advise booking quickly to avoid disappointment.
