Validation Dinner: Brian Mcelderry

Congratulations to chef Brian Mcelderry on his successful validation by the La Belle Assiette Jury!

Congratulations to chef Brian Mcelderry on his successful validation dinner. His validation took place on the 30th of June near Durham. The role of the jury members was to try the private chef dining experience and evaluate the menu prepared by the chef.

The Chef

Brian is a highly experienced freelance chef who has worked in Saudi Arabia, France, Switzerland, Malta and Libya. He has cooked for highly prestigious families around the world. His varied career elevated him to Executive Chef by the age of only 25, and with his holistic approach to all of his creations, Brian believes that even the smallest detail should not escape his attention. Brian is very much a traditionalist. A pioneer of the Nouvelle Cuisine, he considers his work to be classical yet modern, applying an approach that is refreshing and unique. He believes that good food, simply cooked, is very often the key to a successful dining experience.

“Brian arrived two hours early on the evening of the party with his with lovely wife Anne, in order to prepare for the party to begin. We set our dining table up before they arrived but Anne kindly told me that they’d usually do that too. They literally have EVERYTHING covered. The couple were both charming, easy to talk to and myself plus my guest totally adored them. Brian and Anne told us to sit back and relax, so we did. I left them to it in my kitchen and my guests began to unwind in the garden with a glass of fizz.

Genuinely, I could not recommend Brian and La Belle Assiette enough. Not only is the evening completely stress-free, but the food is seriously out of this world. Better than any restaurant I’ve ever been to that’s for sure. I can’t wait to plan another party with Brian and Anne. They’re an incredible duo!”

Brian created an exceptional meal for his Validation Dinner. Each dish was perfectly cooked and his range of culinary experience shone through: his motto of simple yet delicious really rings true. He was an absolute pleasure to host.
