Call for grouse on the menu

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

Scot­land’s lead­ing chefs are call­ing for more grouse to be on the menu in restau­rants, as demand for lo­cal pro­duce grows.

Andrew Fair­lie, chef at Gle­nea­gles, and Ed­in­burgh restau­rant head Ca­rina Con­tini are team­ing up with the Gift of the Grouse ini­tia­tive to back the use of more of the bird in kitchens, ahead of the Scot­tish Game Fair at Scone Palace this week­end.

Fair­lie said: “We serve grouse ev­ery year in sea­son and it’s ex­tremely pop­u­lar with our cus­tomers.”

He added: “Cus­tomers like it be­cause it’s or­ganic, sus­tain­able and its prove­nance is ex­act.”
