Burns night celebration of Scottish Cuisine

A recent event organised by the Royal Automobile Club has taken place in order to promote food that originates from Scotland. Guests in attendance at the event were served up food prepared by such notable chefs as Philip Corrick.

Members of the club were treated to a wide range of foods on Wednesday, in celebration of the Scottish holiday Burns Night. Other chefs included those who normally cook for The Dorchester and The Ritz.

The Duke of Rothesay was also at the event and in the past he has been known for supporting highland communities and helping in developing the economy in the North Highlands of Scotland. He started to do this through the North Highland Initiative, or NHI, which he launched seven years ago.

The head of food and drink for Scottish Development International is Cameron Sutherland who commented, “London is a great location as it is a perfect place to show off products have come from all over the UK.

This event is lasting for a week and it really highlights the excellent foods that comes from this part of Scotland. There are many notable chefs as well as consumers who know of the quality of goods that come from this region and often utilise them in their food.

The North Highland Initiative is chaired by David Whiteford who said, “This event is a wonderful opportunity for producers from Scotland to show a wide range of their products to important chefs as well as the media.

It is a great opportunity for these people to show off their skills and the diversity of their products. We are very lucky to have the Duke of Rothesay involved with this and he has been a strong supporter of the area through a long time, and we are also grateful to our other partners.”
