Michael Nizzero appointed Executive Chef at The Bath Priory
The wait is over! News has just hit Pig Guide HQ that Andrew Brownsword Hotels has appointed Michael Nizzero as Executive Chef at the Bath Priory Hotel, replacing Sam Moody, who left Bath for pastures new at the end of the summer.
Starting in his new role on January 9 2017, Michael’s illustrious CV boasts 14 years of experience working across the UK, Europe, Dubai and his native Belgium, including a stint at the triple Michelin-starred Waterside Inn (Bray, Berkshire) and a recent spell at The Ritz, London. His UK career began in 2002, where he spent two years at the One-O-One Restaurant in Knightsbridge before moving to Dubai to work as Sous Chef at Pisces Restaurant in 2004, where he rose through the ranks to become Chef de Cuisine by 2007. Michael returned to the UK in 2007 to take Senior Sous Chef role at the renowned Waterside Inn (the only establishment in the UK to have retained three coveted Michelin stars for over 30 years), where he worked alongside Chef Patron Alain Roux. After four years in Bray, he was offered the opportunity to take the helm at Relais & Chateaux property, Hostellerie La Briqueterie where he gained and held a Michelin Star as Executive Chef de Cuisine between 2011 and 2015. Most recently, Michael returned to London in 2015 to become Premier Sous Chef at The Ritz working alongside Executive Chef John Williams MBE to achieve a Michelin Star for the restaurant for the first time in its extensive history.
“We’re delighted that Michael will be joining us at The Bath Priory,” says Alan Swinson, Food and Beverage Director at Andrew Brownsword Hotels. “We worked hard to secure the right candidate to uphold and develop the restaurant’s fine reputation and Michael’s exceptional experience, enthusiasm and passion were a natural fit.”
Michael’s menus at The Bath Priory will include a tasting menu and an a la carte menu, each available daily for both lunch and dinner… and we can’t wait to meet him!
