Samling appoints Phil Cubin as development chef

The Samling hotel on Lake Windermere in the Lake District has recruited Phil Cubin as its new development chef.

Cubin, 29, was previously head chef at Gilpin Lodge and has also worked at Sharrow Bay and the Pier in Sydney, Australia.

The addition of Cubin to the kitchen comes after the recent recruitment of former Noma chef, James Cross, last month.

Cubin will support head chef Ian Swainson and his team in developing new dishes.

Swainson said: "I am delighted to have someone of Phil's talent and experience on-board. To be able to have someone with such ability spending all their time sourcing the best ingredients from around the world and helping develop dishes for the menu is so exciting. Phil's role will enable us to devise new concepts, dishes and deliver consistency across our menu offering."

Cubin said: "This is the biggest and most exciting challenge of my career. I am definitely joining one of the most exciting culinary projects in the UK right now. I hope to use inspiration from my spells at L'Enclume Le Manoir and other top restaurants while in this role. The Samling has an extremely bright culinary future and I am just delighted to have been selected to be part of the team."

Samling general manager Alasdair Elwick said: "It is fantastic to have Phil on-board. I fully expect more appointments of this calibre to be made by the hotel in the coming weeks."
