Sussex Cricket are pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Bowell as Head Chef.
Michael has been with the organisation for the past six years and has spent the past three as Sous Chef to outgoing Head Chef, Paul Gunn.

Michael has played an important role in the development of the award-winning catering at Sussex over recent years and is looking forward to taking over the reins: “Paul has been a real mentor to me over the years and it has been a privilege to work with him and learn from him.

“I’m looking forward to upholding the high standard of catering Sussex Cricket has become renowned for and introducing some of my own ideas of how things can continue to improve.

“We cook for many different types of customers here and I’ll be making sure everyone is looked after, whether they are looking for a traditional menu or something a bit more experimental.

“I’ll be keeping myself and my chefs busy for sure, but I’m sure the end-product will be worth it.”

Paul Gunn is moving on to take up new challenges, but is confident he is leaving the catering at Sussex in good hands: “After 10 years as Head Chef at Sussex, I’m passing on the baton to Mikey Bowell. Mikey’s been an invaluable member of the team for the past six years – three of those as my sous chef.

“Mikey played an integral part alongside the rest of the catering team in winning the title of ‘Best place to entertain your clients’ at the Sussex Business Awards in 2016 and 2013.

“With his background working at such prestigious establishments as Hotel du Vin, Riddle & Finns and Drakes Hotel, he brings a wealth of experience in fine dining and I’m sure he’ll maintain Sussex Cricket’s catering department’s excellent reputation.

“I’ve had a wonderful 10 years at Sussex working with players, clients and members alike and have made many good friends along the way. I’ll continue to keep an eye on the results as I always have done as a keen supporter of Sussex.”
