Nick is our new Head Chef here at The Tayberry at Kinnettles.
Nick has aspired to be a chef since a very young age. Fortunately, at High School, cooking was a subject, and one that Nick excelled in. So much so that Nick was offered a chance to be one of a select few to do an internship, with Country Club Johannesburg, where he worked and studied at the HTA School of Culinary Art. At HTA Nick finished 3rd in his class and got nominated to do ‘Young Chef of the Year South Africa. Following this, Nick returned to Scotland in 2012 to start his career as a chef.
Originally from the seaside town of Arbroath, Adam started cooking from the young age of just 15.
Working his way up the chef ranks in his quickly progressive career, Adam started working in Michelin star restaurants all over Scotland at just aged 18. Teamwork is at the heart of all The Tayberry restaurant strives to achieve. Led and nurtured by Chef Proprietor Adam Newth, his fresh and dynamic team reflect his dedicated work ethic and ambition to go from strength to strength.
Adam is passionate about discovering new talent and developing it for the future and is always keen to hear from aspiring chefs and front of house staff with an interest in a career in hospitality.
A notable milestone in Adam’s career has been a recommendation for his restaurant to become Michelin Star rated.
