Meet David the Breakfast Chef
23/09/2019
Dine with Annabelle in the mornings and you’ll come to recognise a familiar face: that of David Bayes, the breakfast chef. David has played many roles since he joined our culinary team in 1991 as a chef de partie. For the past three years, though, he has overseen the breakfast, working with a team of nine to meet the diverse needs and expectations of the guests. David knows the preferences of repeating guests and can organise special orders with advance notice. Of course, you are invited to experiment with different combinations throughout your stay: at the live egg cooking station, for example, you can select the ingredients for stuffing your omelette before handing them to the cook for preparation. Is the bacon not as crispy as you’d like it? Just ask David to send out a fresh plate cooked to your satisfaction. Be sure to check out the broad selection of breads and pastries from our baking team. At a time when diners are highly attuned to the ingredients in their food, the team has organised the buffet with sections devoted to gluten-free products, lactose-free foods, and jams made without processed sugars, among others. If you have a food allergy, just alert him; he knows the recipe for every dish and can tell you which to avoid (for example, did you know that bacon contains gluten?). Look for David in the distinctive white chef’s toque—he is eager for your feedback and wants to make sure your day gets off to a great start.
