Masterful Artistry Honoured: A Culinary Triumph Celebrated
We are thrilled to announce that our ocean-facing, Dune Restaurant has been awarded with 2 AA Rosettes, a prestigious recognition of culinary excellence. The AA Rosette award, established in 1956, was the first nationwide scheme in the UK for assessing the quality of food served by restaurants and hotels. This esteemed recognition is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and talent of our team, and we are incredibly proud of this significant achievement.
The AA Rosette holds great value in the culinary world. It is a symbol of excellence, conveying that a restaurant has consistently delivered exceptional food and service. The team of AA inspectors, who possess unparalleled expertise and experience in evaluating quality across the UK, thoroughly assesses each aspect of a restaurant's dining experience, including the quality of ingredients, technique, presentation, and overall dining experience.
Receiving 2 AA Rosettes is a remarkable achievement and a milestone for Dune. It is a recognition of our Dune team's unwavering commitment to crafting extraordinary culinary experiences for our guests. The team, led by the ever-talented Chef Daniel Kerr, works tirelessly to create exceptional dishes that showcase the finest ingredients.
The journey towards this achievement has been one of dedication and passion. Kerr and his team constantly strive for excellence in every aspect of Dune's culinary offerings, from meticulous ingredient selection to precise cooking techniques, innovative presentation, and attentive service. The 2 AA Rosettes are a validation of the team's determined efforts and a motivation to continue pushing the boundaries of culinary creativity and excellence.
When asked about this accomplishment Kerr stated, "Achieving 2 AA Rosettes really means the world to myself and my team. When I started working at Fistral Beach Hotel in 2019, I started building a new team of chefs based on the common goal of bringing Dune restaurant up to such calibre. This achievement is truly a testament to the team of chefs and the foodie culture that we have managed to build within the kitchen, and none of this would have been possible without them! Looking forward, our goal is to never grow complacent and always explore to elevate the food and experience for our guests."
We are immensely grateful that Dune has received such recognition, and we extend our heartfelt thank you to Chef Daniel and his team for their hard work and dedication. We would also like to express our gratitude to our guests for the support and appreciation. It is an honour to serve our guests and create unforgettable dining experiences that leave a lasting impression.
As we celebrate, we are inspired to continue our pursuit of gastronomic brilliance in Dune. We are committed to constantly evolving our menu, exploring new flavours, and delivering outstanding service that exceeds our guests's expectations.
