Skye chef in fes­ti­val spirit

The Oban Times - - News -

HEAD chef and Masterchef fi­nal­ist Scott Davies has said he is de­lighted to be tak­ing part in this year’s Spirit of Skye fes­ti­val.

The fes­ti­val on June 16 and 17 will ex­hibit more than 30 lo­cal and re­gional pro­duc­ers, in­clud­ing whisky dis­tillers, award­win­ning brew­ers, gin crafters and food pro­duc­ers all to show­case the what makes Skye a delight for food and drink lovers.

The Three Chim­neys head chef said: ‘Skye pro­duces some of the best fresh food in Scot­land and we have not high­lighted this as a com­mu­nity in any ma­jor way for many years.

‘Now that we have been given spe­cial recog­ni­tion as a Geo­graphic Food Des­ti­na­tion by the Scot­tish Food Awards, we have an even greater ex­cuse to cel­e­brate Skye’s nat­u­ral larder of very spe­cial in­gre­di­ents, from seafood, to beef, lamb and pork, veg­eta­bles, sal­ads, herbs, sea salt and soft fruits. There’s no stop­ping us.’

Items which are pro­duced on the is­land in­clude tablet, choco­lates, a world-renowned sin­gle malt whisky, plus beers and, most re­cently, gin.

The Aros Cen­tre in Portree will be the venue for the event, with en­ter­tain­ment through­out each day.

Scott added: ‘I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to demon­strat­ing some dishes, at the main event on Satur­day at Aros. Over the whole week­end, the Three Chim­neys will be high­light­ing dishes made with fresh lo­cal food, just as we serve ev­ery day through­out the year.’
