A celebrated chef is heading to Speyside to create a five-course meal with ingredients sourced solely from the area.
Gary MacLean, who won Masterchef: The Professionals, will be in Dufftown later this year to serve up the finest cuisine from the region for guests.
The Glasgow-born chef has been tasked with forming the menu entirely from producers and manufacturers from near the town.
The only other rule is that the main course must contain a sample from the world famous venue, Glenfiddich.
Former RAF man Andy Harrold has organised the charity dinner to support forces charities that operate in Moray.
Money raised on the night will support the British Legion in Dufftown, which acts as a central point for groups in the area, and The Veterans Charity.
Mr Harrold said: “There’s so much fantastic food around here that it seemed like an ideal chance to give a top chef this kind of challenge.
“The British Legion hall is needing a lot of work done to it. They need a new heating system or they might have to think closing it down.
“It’s a very busy place and would be a huge loss to the town and the rest of the area so I wanted to do something to help.”
Mr Harrold was based at Kinloss with the RAF as a stores supplier and has now been out of the service for about 20 years.
He now works as a crofter near Dufftown while also running a landscape gardening business that operates across the north-east.
The Veterans Charity is dedicated to providing fast support to ex-forces personnel who are in distress and face a variety of hardships while offering guidance.
Mr MacLean beat nearly 50 other competitors to win the BBC series about two years ago and currently mentors young chefs in Glasgow.
Mr Harrold added: “We’re going to be given Gary an idea of what’s available up here. I can’t wait to see what he’ll come up with.”
The charity dinner is taking place at Glenfiddich Distillery on April 14. Tickets can be booked by calling Mr Harrold on 07917 096625.
