Martin CUCHET

Martin’s professional life has been very much based in the mountains – despite starting life in Marseille. His passion for skiing took him to the top of the game – coaching the Europa Cup French team.

His ski shop in Montalbert is well known for the excellence of his ski technicians, the quillty of the equipment and the friendly, passionate and informed service. He is a very well known face in the area and will be on site to charm Union’s guests in his own inimitable way!

Philip Howard

During his 25 years as chef/owner of The Square in London Phil and the restaurant won many awards – including holding two Michelin stars for 17 years. After its sale in March 2016, Phil opened his latest venture, Elystan Street, which has quickly established itself as one of London’s top restaurants – earning a Michelin star in its first year.
Phil’s cooking has received long-standing critical acclaim. It is highly seasonal cooking using only the finest ingredients and delivers its pleasure through harmony of flavour rather than innovation or technical wizardry.
This philosophy will be very much centre stage at Union where the focus will be on delivering simple, delicious and soul nourishing food.
