Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa Welcomes Rotary Young Chef Winner

This week Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa welcomed Kim Crosland, this year’s winner of the Rotary Young Chef competition. Kim was given the chance to tour the hotel and kitchen and work alongside our experienced chefs.

Kim,  a year 10 student at Keswick School studying hospitality and catering, prepared a three course meal for herself, Mum and Gran in the  Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa’s main kitchen.

The experience follows a continued partnership with our charity of the year Keswick School as we raise money to refurbish the school’s food technology facilities.


Kim’s Winning Menu

With the help of Mark and Sous Chef Terry Davis, Kim received expert help and guidance on cooking her meal.  The budding chef produced a delicious menu which was then served in the two AA rosette winning Lake View Restaurant for her lucky guests.


Mark Harris, Executive Chef said “This is a great opportunity to see aspiring young chefs at their best who can learn from our experienced team. It’s great to know that all the hard work put into improving Keswick School’s food technology department will help students like Kim.”
