Where in Scotland did you grow up, and where did you holiday as a child?
I grew up in wonderful sunny Leith , a place of history and sense of community that still prevails today. Holidaying we would go through to Glasgow where my mum was born , so we would have fantastic days in Kelvingrove Park , the Botanics and then we would go for day trips to Troon , loch Lomond, Dunoon and we went over to Islay and Jura , and i have to say Jura is one of the places i could go to all the time in all weathers and love every second of it.
We’ve enjoyed your delicious cooking, what Scottish food do you enjoy eating?
We are famous for our, Beef, or game and rightly so but it’s our world beating seafood that i fall for every time and it would have to be a big old brown Partan that would win me over lobster and even langoustines.
