Taster in Residence, Chateau Impney Hotel, Droitwich

Chateau Impney in the News: BBC Hereford and Worcester

Monday 29 December 2014

Our Taster in Residence finals were featured on BBC Hereford and Worcester's breakfast show recently.

After our nationwide search for the UK’s first Taster in Residence closed, we chose a shortlist of eight talented foodies who would have to face each other at our taste battle finals.

On the morning of the finals, Andrew Easton from BBC Hereford and Worcester spoke to finalist Alison Deas, the granddaughter of Ralph Edwards, who converted Chateau Impney into a hotel after World War II. Alison told him about her mother’s life at the Chateau as a young girl, and how her grandparents had renovated the building before opening it to the general public as a hotel.

Andrew also caught up with Ben Elder, our General Manager, to find out more about the Taster in Residence search and to discover what was in store for the finalists.
