Three of Scotland’s finest chefs are set to swap their kitchens for the classroom at the Nick Nairn Cook School this November.

The Great Scottish Chefs Weekend takes place at Nick’s flagship cook school in Port of Mentieth, in the heart of the Trossachs, and will run from 11th-13th November.

Chefs Roy Brett, Jamie Scott and Michael Smith will share some of their top tips for cooking like a professional.

Those who attend will cook a three-course meal under the tuition of one of the three expert chefs, with Nick Nairn hosting the event with his friend and fellow TV chef Paul Rankin.

Nick, who described the event as a “fantastic, one-off experience”, said: “This is an opportunity to learn new skills from some of the country’s finest chefs. It’s a chance to highlight the world-class produce that we have in Scotland and the beautiful dishes that can be created with it by adding a little bit of skill and expertise. It should also be a weekend filled lots of fun and laughs.”
