Michelin Star for the Samling.

Michelin announced their awards for the 2017 guide yesterday and the  results  were superb  for  the  Cumbrian dining scene with 3 new Michelin Stars for The Samling , Forest side and Gilpin hotel. Chef Nick Edgar has only been cooking at the Samling for a few months now  after a 15 year stint at Raymond Blancs Le Manoir. Nick has managed to win his first star here straight away. What an amazing day for the Samling team. I’m sure there`s much better to come as the restaurant closes soon for a huge restructuring programme . A new Glass restaurant , ultra modern kitchens and very big ambitions for the future with many more awards to come.

Here`s a quick look at what Chef Nick has been doing since he arrived to earn the Samling its new Michelin star. Nicks partner Christine has also made the move to the Samling from Le Manoir to head up Pastry section…..What a result.
