Guest Chef Series

With 4 years of incredible chefs now under our belt, we’re rapidly becoming a very special location for some very special food.

About The Guest Chef Series

From Masterchef competitors, to Great British Menu winners, we've had an incredible array of talent through our doors recently. Whether or not you're set on always keeping on trend with the latest food scene, our Guest Chef Series allows you to push the boundaries of your palette, for a morsel of the usual cost.

WHERE IT ALL STARTED

Launching in 2017 with Billy and Jack, of MasterChef fame, our Guest Chef series has gone from strength to strength. With food being at the epicentre of most people’s holidays, we know that it’s important to get it right. We now have the capacity to entertain up to 15 different Guest Chefs per year. We aim to have different styles of chefs from different backgrounds in order to provide a unique experience with each event. The Peligoni Club is lucky enough to be able to facilitate almost all styles of cooking and therefore replicate some of the finest food that these chefs have to offer, right in the heart of our tucked away slice of paradise.

HOW IT ALL WORKS

There are two events that each Guest Chef will do – both being very different and we encourage you to test out both. Typically, the first will be a feast. The idea is to muck in, meet those like-minded around you and indulge in everything that’s put in front of you, be it edible or drinkable. The second event is usually a little smaller, ranging from a masterclass environment to a more fine dining evening, with everything in between. These evenings are designed to get you eating and drinking some of the finest produce that the island has to offer.

Lee Westcott

Growing up in Hertfordshire, Westcott was drawn to the kitchen at the age of 16 and shortly after learning the ropes as a young chef, began working for the Galvin brothers in London.

Over the years, Westcott has traveled the globe taking his incredible skills to locations including Denmark, New York, Hong Kong and London.

Lee will be hosting a Dinner Party Takeover on 29th June and a Fine Dining Taster Menu on 2nd July.
