Read the Story

Paul Welburn, Chef Patron at The Swan Inn, Islip, is a long-time ProWare friend and collaborator. We recently visited The Swan and love Paul’s innovative use of local produce for his tasting menu. The menu changes frequently so there is always something new to try!

Paul credits culinary legend Gary Rhodes with teaching him about ‘food perfection’ and a stint as a chef on a private yacht in Cannes with opening his eyes to the vibrancy of local produce. Back in London, he worked under top chef Richard Corrigan before returning to Gary Rhodes, as his sous chef. After becoming head chef at the Michelin-starred restaurant, Paul went on to work for Searcys and The Leconfield, Petworth before being awarded a Michelin star as Head Chef at The Oxford Kitchen.

Like many of our collaborators, Paul wowed the judges on the Great British Menu in 2014 and we’re now thrilled to have him cooking up culinary wonders in ProWare pans at The Swan Inn, Islip. To make a booking click here.

Our Copper Tri-Ply mini range features on the beautiful open kitchen pass at The Swan. Paul has used our minis to make amazing recipes from Blueberry Souffles to Coronation Smoked Haddock Scotch Eggs. Paul even made Cheddar and Ham Scones in our cast-iron mini casserole dishes, always finding new and innovative ways to use our pans.

Our Stainless-Steel Tri-Ply range is also a firm favourite. His Braised Venison Cobbler and Pot-Roasted Partridge are both started on the hob and finished in the oven in our 24cm Stainless Steel Sauté Pan.
