ScotHot 2017 has announced the names of eight of Scotland’s Michelin-Star and award-winning chefs who’ll be showcasing their expertise at the March exhibition.

The brigade, including new CIS Excellence Award Advisory Board Member and reigning MasterChef: The Professionals winner, Gary Maclean, form part of the official line-up for ScotHot’s brand-new Staff Canteen Live.

Gary (pictured centre with Stuart Ralston Chef-Proprietor at Edinburgh’s Aizle restaurant, left, and Brian Grigor, Executive Chef at The Balmoral’s Number One Restaurant) and his colleagues will demonstrate their skills and techniques in everything from Michelin-starred cookery to French patisserie.

Joining them will be: Adam Handling, Scottish Chef of the Year 2016; Geoffrey Smeddle, award-winning chef of The Peat Inn; Graeme Cheevers, head chef at Martin Wishart Loch Lomond; chocolatier William Curley; and UK World Chocolate Master, Ruth Hinks.

Toby Wand, managing director of ScotHot organiser, Fresh Montgomery, said: ‘We always like to bring something different for our visitors and this year the line-up of chefs in the new Staff Canteen Live stage is second to none, with experts in both sweet and savoury cookery.’
