In August of 2017, The Calcot Collection were thrilled to welcome Richard Davies as Executive Chef at Calcot and in September, Jamie McCallum as new Head Chef of The Painswick.
Richard joined Calcot from The Celtic Manor in South Wales, where launched and headed up the resort’s fine dining restaurant, Epicure. Prior to Epicure, he attracted a loyal following as Executive Chef at The Manor House in Castle Combe near Bath, where he gained a Michelin star in 2009 retaining it for the rest of his time there, through to early 2016.
Jamie was senior sous chef at Anthony Demetre’s AD12 pop-up restaurant in late 2013, before teaming up with him again at the start of 2014 as Head Chef at his one-Michelin-starred Wild Honey restaurant in Mayfair.
More recently, Jamie’s insight as a chef has adopted different slants at London’s Waitrose Cookery School and then at the restaurant supplier, Flying Fish Seafoods.
