Meet the Chef
Jon Batchelor is the Executive Head Chef at Barnham Broom for both Brasserie at Barnham Broom and the Sports Bar. Throughout his career he has worked at Michelin-starred Thackeray's, Delia’s Restaurant and Adlard's.
Jon says about his cooking “I enjoy working with fantastic ingredients, being creative and love the buzz you get from cooking for hundreds of people in just a few hours; nothing else comes close to a feeling like that. I am particularly keen on using locally sourced produce in my kitchens as, not only is it the freshest, it also gives my diners a real taste of Norfolk”.
Jon describes his cooking style as Modern English with a twist. One of his signature dishes is Pan Seared Scallops with Pea Puree, Chorizo, Chorizo Oil and Pickled Girolles.
