Meet our chef
Our skilful young chef and co-founder of Terroir Andre Borg, is driven by a passion for excellence. After completing his studies in Malta, Andre ventured to London where he acquired valuable experience as a commis chef at multiple restaurants owned by the renowned Gordon Ramsey. Throughout his spell in London Andre exhibited an intense ambition and superb culinary skills. His remarkable consistency routed him to the Orangery at Rocklife Hall Restaurant, in Darlington where he was appointed as sous chef. During his time, the Orangery was awarded 4AA Rosettes, making it one of the 43 restaurants in UK which have this label.
Andre reached another milestone in his career when he was chosen for the popular programme MasterChef.
When he returned to his homeland, Andre’s desire to share and express what he had learnt and experienced enthused him to co-found Terroir, a fine dining concept in the quaint village of Attard. At Terroir, taste of what’s provided on earth (terra) during the different seasons, is of utmost importance. This is further flavoured by the character of the location and the hospitality of Andre’s brother-in-law and co-founder Nicholas. Nicholas' zeal at the front of house complements that of his brother in law and his approach with the patrons clearly reflects the number of years he clocked up in the industry as commis chef at St. Mellion International Resort and as head server at multiple 5-star hotels in Malta.
