Chef Aiden Byrne heads back to Wirral for one night only

Liverpool-born super-chef and Wirral favourite, Aiden Byrne, is heading back to Wirral for a special fine dining event.

The acclaimed chef, who is still the youngest person ever to have been awarded a Michelin star, has announced he will be taking over the kitchen at LOST, a new supper club and events venue in Claremont Courtyard, Bebington.

The evening, which is being billed as an ‘incredible culinary journey’, includes a specially designed, six course, fine dining tasting menu, with a matched wine flight option.

The menu includes a hint of some of Aiden’s classic dishes including a roasted scallop with his famous white chocolate and truffle risotto, a salt-aged duck course with pistachio, veal and prune terrine and maple vinegar and finally, a Lemon and Fennel panna cotta with honey sponge and lemon sorbet.

Speaking about his return to the peninsula, Aiden said, “I am so excited to be heading back to Wirral. I had an amazing few years here running the Collingwood in West Kirby, and have lots of friends and family in the area, so it will be great to see some old faces again.

“I love the whole concept at Lost. It’s a stunning building, and the supper-club approach is a unique way of offering guests some truly exciting culinary experiences.”

LOST owner and entrepreneur, Dave Loughlin said that the team could not be more excited have Aiden cook. “Our idea has always been to offer superb quality, unique dining experiences in our beautiful barn setting. Getting Aiden on board has been a bit of a dream for us and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with on the night. We have more amazing guest chefs lined up over the coming months, so watch this space!”

Aiden, who has been at the helm of some of the region’s most acclaimed restaurants, has been resident chef director for sixteen years now at his two Rosette gastro pub, the Church Green in Lymm.

Working alongside his wife Sarah, the pair have transformed the site into a leading gastronomic hub, offering elevated pub-classics as well as regular fine dining events. During lockdown, the couple refurbished a section of the pub to create, what has become an award-winning deli, selling a range of local produce and Aiden’s famous hand-crafted pies.
