Nestled in the picturesque village of Cartmel, L’Enclume is a culinary gem that embodies the essence of farm-to-table dining. Led by the visionary chef Simon Rogan, it is the latest restaurant in the UK to receive 3 Michelin stars and very deservedly so.
At the heart of L’Enclume’s success lies Rogan’s impressive farm in Grange over Sands. This unique biodynamic farm boasts over 160 varieties of plants, providing a diverse range of seasonal vegetables,herbs, fruit and flowers that find their way onto the restaurant’s menu. By farming according to biodynamic principles and sourcing directly from his farm, Rogan ensures a level of quality, freshness, and sustainability that few establishments can rival.
The kitchen at L’Enclume is overseen by executive chef Paul Burgalières, who draws upon his experience from his time at the 3 Michelin-starred Geranium in Copenhagen. The meticulously crafted sequence of over 15 dishes unfolds like a narrative, showcasing the essence of each season and the finest ingredients that the UK has to offer. The culinary journey at L’Enclume seamlessly blends classic French techniques with a touch of Japan, influenced by the micro-seasonality of ingredients. The result is a world-class culinary experience that stands tall alongside the very best three Michelin-starred restaurants worldwide.
