Sherry comes home as Balmoral’s head chef
Back home: Mathew Sherry
The Balmoral has appointed Edinburgh-born Mathew Sherry as head chef of Number One – the hotel’s fine-dining Michelin-starred restaurant.
Mr Sherry returns to his home city from a similar role at Michelin-starred Northcote in Lancashire, where he worked closely with executive chef Lisa Goodwin-Allen.
Prior to Northcote, he honed his skills under chef patron Dominic Jack, working for seven years at Castle Terrace in Edinburgh during the restaurant’s Michelin-starred reign.
Number One opened in 1997 and was first awarded a Michelin star in 2003.
