Adam Harper joined us in October 2018 after honing his craft at the Michelin-starred Fischer’s, the nationally-renowned The French under Simon Rogan, and taking the reins at Rowley’s.
During his first year at the helm of The Cavendish, Adam was placed as national finalist in the prestigious Roux Scholarship. He also influenced the hotel’s rise to five AA red star status, as well as elevating The Gallery to three AA rosettes.
Adam brings his food sustainability ethos to the fore when curating his menus, from using Chatsworth beef nose-to-tail, to forging strong relationships with local suppliers who work with him to create the best produce. His vision is reflected in the perfectly pared-back dishes he creates which celebrate the seasons and allow ingredients to speak for themselves.
Adam is married with a daughter and son, and lives in Chapel le Frith, Derbyshire.
