Stephen and Joanna Bulmer have closed the Brook Hall Cookery School and will be integrating their skills into the 10in8 Group’s cookery school and Fine Dining Academy.
Stephen Bulmer has become head chef at 10in8’s Restaurant Angélique in Dartmouth. Joanna Bulmer has been appointed 10in8’s head of marketing.
“We are delighted to be joining the 10 in 8 Fine Dining Group,” said Joanna. “We share in its values and ambitions and look forward to playing a significant part in their development and growth.”
Richard Pursey, chairman of the 10 in 8 Group, added: “Our Fine Dining Academy has probably the strongest teaching line up of any restaurant-based cookery school in the UK. Stephen will expand this offering further while Joanna will help us to build and maximise the potential of our customer base across the Group.”
Before opening Brook Hall, Stephen Bulmer ran the Raymond Blanc Cookery School at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons following in the footsteps of 10in8’s executive chef, Alan Murchison.
Joanna Bulmer has a blue-chip advertising and direct marketing background as well as top-level hospitality management experience, also gained at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons.
