Top team

We bring news of fresh young faces at the excellent Harissa Mediterranean Kitchen in Newcastle, where Richard Brimacombe has been appointed executive head chef and Nick Smith is now general manager. The Middle Eastern and Mediterranean-inspired destination is branching out into outside catering following the appointments as well as setting sights on the healthier side of the takeaway market.

This follows a successful 2017, which saw the social enterprise reach the final of the People’s Favourite category in the Food Made Good Awards. Harissa works with numerous local producers, including the team at Food Nation’s own Wor Lotty allotment in High Heaton.
