Miele appoints New Development Chef
Premium domestic appliance manufacturer, Miele, has appointed award-winning Andrew Scott as its New Development Chef, responsible for the company’s food, cooking and experience strategy.
Mr Scott is a former Ramsay Scholarship finalist and has an accomplished career including stints at the Michelin starred L’Enclume in Cumbria, Lords of the Manor in the Cotswolds, Mallory Court hotel in Warwickshire and The Curlew in Kent.
Most recently, as Executive Chef at Sudbury House Hotel, Mr Scott led an ambitious change programme designed to improve the food offering in all areas of the hotel which resulted in Sudbury House being awarded three AA Rosettes in just 18 months. He has also appeared on BBC2’s ‘Great British Menu’ representing the central region.
As Development Chef at Miele, based in Abingdon, Mr Scott will be responsible for bringing Miele appliances to life through the creation and development of recipes which showcase the key Miele points of difference and setting new industry standards in customer education and experience.
Mr Scott commented: “This is an exciting opportunity for me and I feel incredibly proud to be joining such a prestigious brand and team. Miele products deliver exceptional cooking results and I am looking forward to pushing the boundaries and discovering just what’s possible in developing innovative new recipes and experiences. My aim is to surprise, inspire and guide Miele customers in helping them choose the products that are right for them and enable them to prepare restaurant quality results at home.”
Neil Pooley, category manager for cooking at Miele GB, added: “This is a brand new role for Miele and I very much look forward to working with Andrew who brings a wealth of incredible experience. He completely gets our ethos, customer profile and what we are trying to achieve in affirming Miele’s position as the first choice for the discerning cook.”
