Evening Express (City Final) - - UK & Abroad -

AN AWARD-WINNING chef will be cook­ing up a storm at a spe­cial event this sum­mer. Gary Ma­clean, who was crowned the win­ner of Masterchef: The Pro­fes­sion­als in 2016, will show­case his culi­nary skills at Taste of Grampian. The an­nual event, which last year at­tracted a record 16,000 vis­i­tors, will take place at the Thain­stone Cen­tre near In­verurie on June 2. Mr Ma­clean, pic­tured, who opened his first restau­rant at the age of 30 and has op­er­ated kitchens at Glas­gow’s Gallery of Mod­ern Art and the Bur­rell Col­lec­tion, will be one of the judges of the Taste of Grampian As­pir­ing Young Chef com­pe­ti­tion, and will host a cook­ery demon­stra­tion. The chef is cur­rently a se­nior lec­turer at the City of Glas­gow Col­lege and takes great pride in teach­ing com­mu­ni­ties about how to make the best of lo­cally sourced food. Mr Ma­clean said: “I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to the event. Taste of Grampian now has a fan­tas­tic pro­file Scot­land-wide, and I’ll def­i­nitely be head­ing round the stands to meet ex­hibitors and sam­ple the fan­tas­tic food and drink on of­fer.”
