This week marks the beginning of my Epic treck across Scotland to find the Best Afternoon Tea in Scotland's Hotels . I start with the big guns - The 5 Star Hotels of Distinction. From Ackergill House in Wick North of Scotland to The Scotsman in Edinburgh to Cringlettie House in the Borders and the West - One Devonshire Gardens in Glasgow. I will be reviewing over 30 of the finest Hotels in Scotland for Afternoon Tea and will post Live reviews as and when i have them. The Hotels in most cases will not have advance notification until i arrive , no money will change hands in turn for a great review, no membership is required , no media involvement (until after the review of course ! ) I believe we need to get back to earning honest great reviews from Professional people that know what they are talking about. Too many Awards are given for just about anything these days from people and organisations you have never heard of that have no experience or prior knowledge of the industry you are in . This is insulting in my opinion. I am no blogger , Newswpaper Food critic or fame hungry entrepenuer . I am a Professional Chef and Master Baker who has founded a very successful " Scottish Baking Awards " My views are my own but are also Expert. Looking forward to seeing you all !
Next year is the Loch Lomond Food and Drink Festivals 10th Year and is also Scotlands year for Food and Drink. To celebrate in style i will be appearing with a chosen list of winners from our last 5 years Scottish Baking Awards to provide Masterclasses for the 25,000 expected crowd. Not only is this one of the most scenic and beautiful locations in Scotland ( If not the world) it is also one of the biggest and best Festivals in Scotland. This runs over the weekend 5th and 6th september 2015. More details to follow soon.
The last few weeks have been frantic - between filming and organising the 4th Annual Scottish Baking Awards , helping launch the BBC Good Food ,Bakes and Cakes show in London and appearing on Scottish Television Live to name but a few !!
