Reuben - Cooking with the Stars: Su Bloomberg of Old Hall Country Club in Chester


Su Bloomberg, along with her husband Anders, is the owner of Old Hall Country Club near Chester. A beautiful old property in the Cheshire countryside that Su and Anders converted into a luxury spa and country club. It’s a popular spot for celebrities, particularly footballers and their wives as it’s close to both Manchester United and Manchester City football clubs.


Su came to the corner for a visit, she is a chef so it was a real treat and Reuben was lucky enough to be able to cook with the wonderful Su. Together they cooked a lovely salad and papillote cod, take a look at the photos to see how Reuben did and how much of the work he did himself. Su said “It was lovely to be at the corner and cook with fresh food and olive oil from the estate, it was all very exciting as Reuben was off to St Paul’s the next day” see more about that here.
