Cooking in the Borders of Scotland



Next week I’m off to Chisholme House in the Scottish Borders, to prepare for a one week residential cookery course with a difference.

From Sunday 10th August to Saturday 16th I will be cooking, talking about food, looking at the economics of food and farming, and the thinking about the future of food in our world with Aaron Cass,  bread-maker supreme Robin Thompson, Colin Tudge [Campaign for Real Farming] , and Charlotte Maberly,[ leader, Slow Food Edinburgh and author of the Gastronomy MSc at Queen Margaret University].

Weather permitting, we will have wonderful produce to prepare from the walled garden, as well as lots of other local produce. This is a pilot project, which, if successful, we hope to repeat and expand at future dates.

    Cooking on your birthday – that’s a bit rough!

    Is there a Beshara involvement in the course?

    Looks like fun – hope you have a great time.

    All the best,
