Wirral restaurant welcomes Liverpool’s renowned chef Paul Askew for special event

Liverpool’s favourite super-chef, Paul Askew, has announced he is bringing his celebrated The Art School restaurant this side of the water for a special dining event.

Paul and his team will be taking over the kitchens at Lost on Thursday, 6 June. Guests can expect an evening of world-class dining as The Art School makes Lost its second home for the evening.

Housed in a restored barn close to Claremont Farm, Lost has reinvented dining on the peninsula, creating a venue for guests looking for a unique, high-quality dining experience.

As a local himself, Chef Askew is passionate about supporting food businesses, growers, suppliers, and emerging talent from across the region, and said he has been watching the developments at Lost with interest since they launched in October of last year.

Askew said, “I visited Dave and the team at Lost before they opened and was enchanted by the space. I loved Dave’s vision for the supper-club concept and could see that The Art School offering would be a good match, once they had got up and running.

“We have lots of loyal guests on the Wirral, so it seemed fitting to bring our very special concept over the water for a night and we are really looking forward to meeting patrons old and new at our takeover on 6 June.”

Chef Patron and owner of The Art School for the last nine years, Paul is famed for his classic and innovative fine-dining experiences. An advocate for attracting, inspiring, and retaining the best talent in the industry, his team is made up of an array of young chefs under his tutelage.

Lost owner Dave Loughlin said the team are “over the moon” to have Chef Askew and his team on board, saying, “Paul has been a great support since day one, and he’s been at the top of our list in terms of guest chef takeovers since we first developed the supper-club concept.

“We are honoured he has agreed to join us for this very special dining experience and look forward to thrilling our guests with his culinary genius on 6 June.”
