In celebration of local producers and the reopening of Edinburgh’s vibrant hospitality scene, Tom is collaborating with CALA Homes (East) on a live event at its Boroughmuir development in the city.
The Masterchef judge regular will be hosting a cook-along at the housebuilder’s recently opened second showhome on Friday May 7, using ingredients locally-sourced from his favourite suppliers in the Capital, and showing how home cooks can replicate his restaurant dishes.
On the menu is salmon fillet, sourced from Welch fishmongers at Newhaven served with spring peas and broad beans. The full recipe will be shared ahead of the event for budding home chefs and followers to easily follow along on the day.
Chef Kitchin, who is Scotland’s youngest winner of a Michelin star and Chef Proprietor of four businesses across Edinburgh and East Lothian, believes the partnership is the perfect opportunity to showcase the best of Scottish produce as the industry reopens.
He said: “Edinburgh has a fantastic hospitality scene and it’s great to do something fun and a bit different to celebrate the reopening of restaurants, bars and pubs across the country.
“The invite is a fantastic opportunity to try out the kitchens at Boroughmuir, while giving home cooks a challenge to replicate the quality of a restaurant meal at home.
“The kitchens have an incredible specification and look like the perfect setting for getting creative, so I’m excited to visit and try everything out.”
Chef Kitchin will be cooking in the development’s showhome kitchen which has been designed by Kitchens International and is fully equipped with integrated Siemens appliances throughout.
Philip Hogg, sales and marketing director with CALA Homes (East), said: “It’s a real honour to have Scotland’s most renowned chef cooking in a Cala kitchen – we’re thrilled to have him showcase how you can create a restaurant-quality dish from home.
“Since we welcomed our first residents late last year, we’ve heard a lot of great feedback on our kitchens, so we wanted to showcase and celebrate that, as well as local produce and hospitality.”
