Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight

Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight is an annual celebration of Scottish produce which runs from 3-18 September. It champions the wide variety of homegrown quality food and drink available in Scotland and encourages more people to Eat Scottish.

To mark the Fortnight, eleven of Scotland’s top chefs are pledging a fortnight of their time to young chefs who are hoping to make their mark in the Scottish catering and hospitality sector. Chefs committed include Nick Nairn, Martin Wishart, Andrew Fairlie, Albert Roux, Dominic Jack, Tom Lewis, Kevin McGillivray, John Quigley and Joe Queen.

Chefs Roy Brett, Ondine, and John Paul, Macdonald Marine Hotel, will be joined by Fergus Ewing, minister for energy, enterprise and tourism to launch the scheme at Craigie’s Farm showing their support for young Scottish talent.
