Aim for the stars
For the ultimate foodie holiday, the Michelin Star Trail will give you food for thought – following recently refurbished Michelin Star restaurants throughout Britain and beyond.
Highlights on the trail include Nathan Outlaw in the fishing village of Port Isaac, Cornwall, which offers a private “chef’s table” and The Kitchin on Edinburgh’s Leith waterfront, owned by husband-and-wife team Tom and Michaela Kitchin and housed in a converted whisky-bonded warehouse.
Then there’s the Goring in London – where Kate Middleton famously gave the world the first glimpse of her Alexander McQueen wedding dress as she left the hotel on her wedding day – which has recently been awarded its first ever Michelin star, following an extensive refurbishment.
Also, on the not-to-be-missed list, following a major refurbishment, is Bohemia Bar and Restaurant in Jersey. Head chef Steve Smith, who has held a Michelin Star for over 15 years from the age of just 24, sources the majority of his ingredients, such as the famous Jersey Royal potato and fresh scallops, from the island itself.
