A multi-Michelin Starred chef will cook up a treat when he arrives in Buckinghamshire this summer.

Jean-Christophe Novelli MBE, who became the personal chef of the Rothschild family in his teens, will be serving his award-winning dishes at Waddesdon Manor when the Auto Royale Concours visits the county this July.

The chef has prepared a special menu for VIP guests who will arrive at the event this summer, with the 60-year-old Frenchman preparing a three-course French meal, which will be cooked by the catering company, Relish.

Looking ahead to the event that will take place between July 16 and July 18, he said: “ It is a great privilege to be asked to provide a menu at such a prestigious event being staged at Waddesdon, a former Rothschild home and one that was modelled on the style of the French Renaissance Châteaux of the Loire valley.

“Auto Royale is a very special event that is attracting interest from the UK and around the world.

“It is important that those attending get the right experience, not just from seeing the amazing cars that will be on show, but participating and enjoying the dining that will be on offer over the three-day event.”

Currently working on the full re-opening of his Novelli restaurant at City Quays in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the three-day event this summer could bring back memories for the chef, who became Head Chef of the Rothschild family due to a car crash when he was 19-years-old.

He continued: “I had been appointed to work with the Head Chef who was a real car fanatic and thought, ‘that he was a rally driver even when we went to buy ingredients for the kitchen.’

“Very often we were on two wheels going round a corner and I was forever asking him to slow down. One morning I did not go with him, he crashed the car and was injured, and I was asked to be Head Chef.”

“It will bring back memories of my time with the family.”

Event organiser, Paul Mathers said: “ We are delighted that Jean Christophe has put together a special menu and will be attending the event. It is another great element that will make this event very special.

“It was great to meet with him and discuss the Menu and with a new French car, the Alpine 110 which reflects the spirit of the legendary Berlinette that won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1971 and the first World Rally Championship in 1973.”
