The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - News -

MasterChef: The Pro­fes­sion­als 2014 win­ner Jamie Scott will help show­case An­gus pro­duce at a ma­jor Euro event in Brus­sels to­day.

Ar­broath cook Jamie will give his per­sonal in­sight into Scot­land’s Year of Food and Drink as the East of Scot­land Euro­pean Con­sor­tium hosts its sum­mer re­cep­tion.

The event will see high-level EU de­ci­sion mak­ers from the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion and the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment and other guests from as far afield as Aus­tralia and Canada.

Jamie said: “I’m de­lighted to have been in­vited to sup­port ESEC as Scot­land is rich with dif­fer­ent foods — all a joy to cook with.

“Work­ing with An­gus pro­duce first hand makes me so very aware of the im­por­tance of sup­port­ing these lo­cal busi­nesses, like Ar­bikie Vodka and Ar­broath Smok­ies to name but a few. Show­cas­ing our lo­cal pro­duce to Europe in the Year of Food and Drink is some­thing I truly sup­port.”

Brechin coun­cil­lor Mairi Evans is chair­woman of ESEC and will co-host the re­cep­tion.

She said: “This is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to show­case some of the very best of An­gus pro­duce.

“The re­gion cov­ered by ESEC of­fers great di­ver­sity and va­ri­ety, with an en­vi­able of­fer­ing of the tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary.

“From the fan­tas­tic of­fer­ing of veni­son, lamb and the worl­drenowned Aberdeen-An­gus beef, to the soft fruit in­dus­try of the east and of course the in­cred­i­ble seafood thanks to our lengthy coast­line, our culi­nary her­itage is un­ri­valled.”

ESEC was es­tab­lished in 1992 to rep­re­sent the Euro­pean in­ter­ests of eight lo­cal author­i­ties in eastern Scot­land.
