Kevin Dalgleish, Chef-patron of Amuse in Aberdeen, will be making his TV debut tomorrow (February 28) on BBC Two’s Great British Menu. Kevin will be representing Scotland in the eighteenth season of the cooking show, alongside a line-up of Scottish culinary talent. Kevin’s rivals include; Mark McCabe, co-owner and head chef at The Ethicurean in Bristol; Adam Handling, owner of the Adam Handling Restaurant Group; and Tunde Abifarin, head chef of the Capital’s Farin Road.
Kevin Dalgleish says: “I’ve been a huge fan of Great British Menu ever since it first aired and am incredibly honoured to have been asked to represent Scotland this year. I’m up against some seriously talented Scottish chefs and I’m really looking forward to everyone at home watching my journey on the show.
“This year’s brief was British Animation and Illustration, which was a joy – it brought back lovely memories of my childhood in Hawick. I can’t wait for people to see my interpretation of the theme through the dishes that I created to showcase Scotland’s natural larder.”
This year, the show is presented by Andi Oliver and judged by previous banquet winner and Michelin starred chef, Tom Kerridge; restaurateur Nisha Katona and comedian and food podcast broadcaster, Ed Gamble.
