Introducing the Galvin Brothers
We asked the Galvin brothers more about the new partnership and what they're looking forward to at Glyndebourne this year.
We asked the brothers more about the new partnership and what they’re looking forward to at Glyndebourne this year.
It came about after a friend from RA Venues asked me if we would consider running the Middle and Over Wallop space at Glyndebourne. Our ethos is to only consider other venues if they are unique and really special.
Easily one of my favourite experiences was visiting Glyndebourne for Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning little Vixen, it was a wonderful experience. The weather was beautiful which made our picnic in the grounds extra special. I was lucky enough to meet the cast and had the pleasure of cooking for them in our bistrot when they visited!
It will be a very authentic reflection of our cooking. Menus have been created using seasonal, local ingredients.
We make a chilled soup from very ripe Charentais melon, which in the Summer was so popular with our regular guests in London, deliciously refreshing. The Apple Tarte Tatin, which has been a signature dish at Galvin restaurants for over 15 years, will be super popular too.
Luckily Glyndebourne is run like a well-oiled machine, with long term staff that have had many years’ experience. We have had the key members of staff up to our Michelin -starred restaurant to cook alongside us.
I would love to see L’elisir d’amore as I really enjoy comedy!
