Fifteen Friday Face- Double Trouble with the Richardsons
Next week we wave goodbye to long time Fifteeners Kirsty and Andi. For the last five years Kirsty has been passing on her passion for food and wine to our guests, working front of house. Behind the scenes Kirsty also put her amazing organisational skills to good use, creating memorable Farmers’ Markets and Graduations. This year Kirsty turned her attention to a very special event of her own, when she married pasta making master Andi on a picture perfect day in July. We’ll all miss Andi’s enthusiasm for cooking and training (and his tortellini). The pair leave us for a winter in the Alps, managing a beautiful chalet in Verbier. We have no doubt their guests will be the envy of all on the slopes, after enjoying the food and service we know that Kirsty and Andi will create and deliver. On behalf of everyone here we wish them the very best of luck on their adventures.
Before they pop off here are their answers to our Friday questions…
