Wojciech Nawalka – Homewood Park


I’m from Poland, I have been a chef for 12 years. This is my first Head Chef position in England. I have worked in England for the past 7 years. In 2009 I won the Chef v Chef competition at the City of Bath College, and 2nd place in 2008 and 2012.

My first job in England in 2006 was at Ston Easton Park Hotel as a Commis Chef, where I worked my way up to  Chef de Partie. I was at Ston Easton for 2 years before I move to Bowood Hotel and Golf Resort as a Sous Chef, after 2 years I move to Homewood Park Hotel where I was promoted to Head Chef. For me it is really important is use fresh and local produce, and of course seasonality.
