The Seven Sins of Adam Smith

Executive Chef at Coworth Park
Adam Smith
Adam is considered one of the UK’s most talented chefs under 30 – he has been described as ‘one to watch’ by chef Michel Roux senior, and he is a former Observer Food Monthly Young Chef of the Year, Craft Guild of Chefs Restaurant Chef of the Year, and Roux Scholarship Winner.

Adam joined Coworth Park in the summer of 2016 from his role as head chef at The Devonshire Arms where he started in 2013, overseeing all food operations including The Burlington Restaurant, Devonshire Brasserie, and conference & banqueting.

During this time The Burlington Restaurant was the only new restaurant to be awarded a coveted four AA rosettes in the January 2015 guide. From 2004 to 2013, he worked under chef John Williams at The Ritz, rising from 2nd commis to executive sous chef.

As part of the Roux Scholarship which he won in 2012, he was given the opportunity to work under chef Yanick Alleno at Le Meurice, Paris – so was already familiar with Dorchester Collection before his move in 2016.
Wrath - What makes you angry about the hospitality industry?
Adam Smith Seven Sins
I think the best thing about cooking is that there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way, each chef just has their own preference which makes each dining experience so unique. Because of this everyone’s cooking style are different, so it niggles me when people put others down because they choose to do something different.
Greed - If all your food fantasies came true what would be on your Plate?
Adam Smith Seven Sins
I love the expensive things in life so for me it would have to be dishes which incorporate truffles, caviar and shellfish. However my girlfriend Annabel makes an amazing roast chicken dinner and if I was to have one last meal that would be it.
Sloth - What do you do to unwind?
Adam Smith Seven Sins
I have two beautiful young children and spending time with them helps me to relax, unwind and keeps me sane.
Pride - What are you most proud of?
Adam Smith Seven Sins
Winning the Roux Scholarship in 2012 was one of my proudest moments. It was an achievement that I had dreamed of since my very early days starting out in the industry.
Lust - Is there anything that you are still lusting to achieve?
Adam Smith Seven Sins
I want to build upon Coworth Park’s already prestigious reputation by making Restaurant Coworth Park a dining destination that is held at the highest regard by customers as well as my peers within the hospitality industry.
Envy - who are you most envious of?
Adam Smith Seven Sins
I don’t believe envy is an attractive trait to possess, I’d much rather look at people as idols who inspire me to grow and improve every day.
Gluttony - have you ever over indulged? 
Adam Smith Seven Sins
Far too often. When you love food it’s hard to turn down good food, especially when you’re around delicious food prepared by talented chefs on a daily basis.
