Laings Saturday Kitchen Headliners Announced
Masterchef: The Professionals winner Jamie Scott along with fellow finalists Brian McLeish and Sven-Hanson Britt will reunite at Laings Saturday Kitchen 2017!
The trio will each give their own cookery demonstration as well as participating in a Masterchef-themed challenge!
Sven joins us for the second time, as a chef expert and ambassador for premium appliance brand - Miele - and those of you who joined us in 2016 will know that his cookery style is a celebration of the UK's natural larder. Last year he sourced all of his ingredients for his demonstration when he arrived in the North East and showed our guests how to get the very best from each of them. Some of you may have encountered Brian before, or certainly eaten in the restaurant he co-owns and is head chef of - Moonfish - in Aberdeen's Merchant Quarter. He was a finalist alongside Sven in Masterchef: The Professionals and his approach to championing fresh, locally sourced seafood sees him celebrate the purity and flavour of his ingredients on the plate. Jamie Scott competed alongside Sven and Brian, becoming Masterchef: The Professionals Winner 2014. Inspired by his grandmother - a keen baker - and his mother - the first female sous chef in Britain - Jamie began his career in his home town of Arbroath, before moving to St Andrews to take on a role as the Head Chef of Rocca. Since winning Masterchef, he and his wife Kelly have established their own restaurant - The Newport - in Newport-on-Tay just across the Tay Bridge from Dundee.
With four not to be missed demonstrations, along with a host of tastings and experiences with our event partners, Saturday Kitchen 2017 is set to be a fun and exciting event. Spaces are limited, so don't forget to reserve your place!
