Well-known Aberdeen chef Graham Mitchell will show food fans how to prepare a three-course meal at this year’s Taste of Grampian.
Mr Mitchell, who is the head chef at The Scullery in Newmachar Hotel and a chef patron of Tarragon Catering, has worked in a number of luxurious Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire restaurants.
In the past, he was the head chef at Trump International at Balmedie, at The Cock and Bull nearby and the Rox Hotel in Aberdeen.
Mr Mitchell also worked at the city’s Chester Hotel, Malmaison, The Marine in Stonehaven and popular city centre seafood eatery Moonfish.
The talented chef, who has taken part in the north-east’s biggest food and drink festival before, will once again show locals how to use fresh produce to cook up some of his signature dishes. And this time, it will be done virtually so that foodies can watch from the comfort of their own kitchens.
Mr Mitchell said: “People can expect local seasonal food from Aberdeen and the shire.
“I’ll be doing a scallop and pork starter, beef fillet and pie, and a strawberry Eton mess.
“I’ll let locals choose what they want to use for garnish.
“All people at home will need are scallops, pork belly, beef fillet and cheek, and strawberries.”
Taste of Grampian 2020 will take place online from Friday, September 18 to Sunday, September 20.
Mr Mitchell thinks it is a great idea to host this year’s food and drink festival virtually.
He said: “Life needs to go on during lockdown.
“I did demos at food festivals online in England and India and I also did some competitions online.”
Taste of Grampian is run in association with Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and other partners include ANM Group, Opportunity North East (ONE), the Press And Journal and Evening Express.
