Tom Westerland – Brasserie Head Chef
Another Welshman at Lucknam Park is Tom (or Westy as he is affectionately known) our Brasserie Head Chef. Tom first met Hywel through the Newport Food Festival when he assisted in preparing the Festival launch dinner in 2012.
Tom was already causing a stir on the Welsh culinary scene as head chef of the award-winning Fig Tree Restaurant in Penarth but, luckily for us, was persuaded to join the team here to broaden his knowledge.
Tom has a passion for simple but clever tasty food and has a particular soft spot for barbecuing, which often appears in his menus.
A keen competitor, Tom has been awarded National Chef of Wales 2018 in the Welsh International Culinary Championships.
