The Celtic Ross Hotel is delighted to introduce Head Chef Alex Petit, who has joined the Celtic Ross kitchen team headed by Executive Head Chef Graeme Campbell.

Alex was born in Brittany and spent his early years training in many fine dining restaurants, such as the Grand Hotel in Dinard and Le Mutin Gourmand before moving to Ireland 10 years ago.

Since then he has taken the post of Head Chef in a number of well-respected hotels in Ireland, as well as taking time to spend a year travelling in Australia discovering fresh culinary innovations. He came back to Ireland with new ideas and an enduring passion for sourcing seasonal and locally sourced produce to create great cuisine. He took the post of Head Chef at The Riverside Café in Skibbereen before moving on to Cork City’s first seafood restaurant Oysters. The cuisine Alex produced in Oysters quickly gained recognition within the culinary arena, winning various awards.  Alex is accredited with membership to ‘Euro Toques’, an elite membership for Chefs that demonstrate exceptional abilities and hold true to the belief that the preparation of good food using good produce is paramount.

Alex now lives in Rosscarbery and he comes to the Celtic Ross Hotel with a wealth of experience.

Neil Grant, General Manager of Celtic Ross Hotel said,”We are delighted to welcome Alex on board. We now have a fantastic kitchen team in place and look forward to pushing our culinary boundaries further and further. It is an exciting time at the Celtic Ross.”

Both Graeme and Alex are equally passionate about using West Cork’s rich larder of artisan food produce to create great dishes for the Celtic Ross Menus. They have already produced a perfectly balanced lunch menu with plenty of choice and packed with local flavour. A new innovation is the Celtic Ross Working Lunch Express Menu, which guarantees your dish will be with you eight minutes after you order; perfect for the busy person. The Celtic Ross Wedding Packages have been given a revamp and offer an appealing range of dishes with great choice, again bursting with flavoursome local produce.

So, whether you want a healthy salad, a speciality platter or a Traditional Afternoon Tea, the Celtic Ross Hotel is one of West Cork’s food destinations that can offer you exceptional taste, freshness and choice in the stunning surroundings of Rosscarbery Bay.
