New Head Chef Jeff Nenonen has taken the helm at the Grand Pier, Weston-super-Mare and will be serving up smiles across the attraction’s food and beverage outlets.
Jeff will be responsible for the catering across the Pier’s Boardwalk Café, Captain Jack’s Bar and Tiffany’s Tea Room & Restaurant, as well as the venue’s conference and event banqueting offering.
With 24 years’ experience in catering, Jeff takes on the role following the departure of Tracey Conquer, who held the position for 10 years and has now relocated to Torquay.
Gaining his culinary stripes at venues across the South West, Jeff says his passion for food will ensure visitors to the Grand Pier will not be disappointed.
Jeff said: “The Grand Pier is an amazing landmark and I’m honoured to be working here amongst a team of fantastic leisure and hospitality professionals.
“It’s great to be able to express my passion and bring new ideas to the differing food outlets at the Pier, which all cater for different customers and offer a variety of top-quality snacks and meals.
“I’m looking forward to producing some great gastronomy for our customers and hopefully really adding to their special day out.”
Michelle Michael, co-owner of the Grand Pier, said: “We are delighted to have Jeff join us. His extensive knowledge of catering for leisure venues paired with his clear passion for creating memorable dishes for customers will be a great advantage for anyone visiting the Pier for a day out, event or conference.
“Our offering here is widely varied, from hosting weddings and special occasions to welcoming families looking for a portion of fish and chips and an afternoon of fun. I’m sure Jeff will do a great job of meeting our customers’ needs.”
