Scottish Chef of the Year 2011 Neil Forbes is set to host another master class at Hopetoun Farm Shop.

The theme for the event on Thursday, June 19, is fresh, simple seasonal produce. It will see Forbes, who prides himself on cooking with ingredients sourced from local and Scottish suppliers, teaching ‘students’ how to source the best ingredients for great dishes, by choosing produce that is in season and on their doorstep.

He said: “Hopetoun Farm Shop is a cornucopia of superb ingredients, perfect for creating quick meals.

“I can’t wait to share my seasonal cooking top tips again. The secret is simple: start with great ingredients!”

This is not the first time Hopetoun has played host to world-class chefs. It has previously staged master classes with Craig Wood and Kenny Whittle.

Tickets for the master class, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, are priced £10 and can be purchased from the Hopetoun Farm Shop or by calling 01506 830 716.

Previous masterclasses have sold out in a matter of days, with a waiting list created in case of last minute cancellations.
