Scotland’s biggest one-day food and drink festival was a huge success.
With over 200 exhibitors and a huge array of cookery demonstrations, beer, wine and gin tastings AND live music all day, there was over 15,000 visitors on the day.
We were delighted to be involved with this year’s Taste of Grampian which is held at the Thainstone Mart, Inverurie
Kev Shand our resident chef was asked to come back again & do some cookery demonstrations using Local produce. He opened the event inside the Exchange building on the Braehead demo kitchen before rushing to the outside arena to cook a Scotch Lamb dish in front of lots of Foodies.
Kevin used Local Scotch Lamb, Devenick dairy Cheese, OLA Rapeseed Oil & Udny Provender Honey to create a Warm Scotch Lamb salad with Roast summer vegetables, FIT LIKE Cheese drizzled with Honey
On stage that day along with Kevin was Master Chef winner & ‘Scotland’s National Chef’ Gary Maclean plus other local chefs such as Fraser Rodman, Head chef of Banchory Lodge & Ross Cochrane, Head chef of Rothesay Rooms in Ballater.
All cooking with a Young student from a Local academy which was delightful to see giving it is the Year of the Young people.
