A celebrated hotel, restaurant and bar on the Jurassic Coast has announced a calendar of guest chef suppers throughout 2024.

The Seaside Boarding House in Burton Bradstock, which has made the finals of this year's Trencherman Awards for 'Best Hotel', will be showcasing seven more guest chefs this year after a successful first event with Anna Tobias, from Café Deco.

A spokesperson for the hotel and restaurant, said: "The guest chef series provides the opportunity for The Seaside Boarding House team to work with some of the most exciting culinary talent operating in the UK, showcasing a range of cuisines from modern European to Malaysian.

"For the chefs it will be a chance to work with some of the brilliant local produce that Dorset has to offer.

"In a whistle-stop residency, each guest chef will join The Seaside Boarding House team in the kitchen for one day, cooking a three-course menu for lunch and dinner, with 50 covers for each."

A full list of guest chefs appearing at the Seaside Boarding House this year:

Abby Lee - October 19

Born in Singapore and of Chinese-Malay descent, Abby Lee is the head chef and founder of Mambow, whose modern interpretation of regional Malaysian cuisine - and described by Marina O ‘Loughlin as ‘a quiet magician of Malaysian cookery’ - has made her restaurant one of London’s most exciting places to eat.

Husband and wife duo Rick and Katie opened Prawn on the Lawn in London in 2013 as a fishmonger and seafood bar with just eight seats, moving to a bigger site just down the street in 2015. A second site followed in Padstow, Cornwall.
