Goodwood Chooses White as New Exec

Alan White, formerly executive chef at The Brighton Grand, has been named as the senior chef at Goodwood Hotel near Chichester. White spent 16 years at the helm in Brighton and will oversee all the cuisine at the Goodwood Hotel and afternoon tea at Goodwood House. He will also head up the Farmer, Butcher, Chef, The Kennels and Hound Lodge.

Managing Director of Goodwood Entertaining and Hospitality Andrew Coggins said:

“It’s been a long-standing goal to bring Alan to Goodwood. Alan’s exceptional experience, dedication and flair for food reflects our passion for perfection, with our own Home Farm providing award-winning, organic produce in our flagship, sustainable restaurant. Coming over from Brighton Alan will have travelled further than our food ingredients.”

White said of his new role:

“I always strive to push myself with new culinary challenges. There are so many opportunities to be creative at Goodwood, while staying true to its heritage. I am looking at innovating new ways to use the estate-reared organic meat and produce along with the best locally-sourced ingredients in a such beautiful countryside setting.

“I can’t wait to put my own stamp on dining experiences for Goodwood’s guests and I’m looking forward to the large-scale meetings and events we have planned in 2022.”
