Thrown in at the deep end, Graham Ball, Head Chef at the Borrowdale Hotel started with us on an exceptionally busy Good Friday. Graham wanted to become part of the hotel through his love of the Lake District, in particular the beautiful Borrowdale Valley. Over the years Graham has worked in all types of catering hospitality, from hotels, contract catering, the royal air force, royal & state functions in London to teaching in colleges. All of which have had a huge influence on his cooking style.
