Guests will also receive a signed cookbook and have the opportunity to chat to Marco and ask their culinary questions.

Speaking ahead of the event, Marco says, “Edinburgh is a fantastic city where people are very knowledgeable about food and really make a night of going out to a restaurant.

“It is always great to come back to the city, meet our guests and catch up with the team.

“I’m really looking forward to the event. The menu is designed to showcase our fantastic beef which goes hand in hand with a steakhouse, as well as some stunning wines that complement the food.”

The cost of the three course dinner with pairing wines is £60 per person, including a signed Marco book, or £100 per couple with one signed cook book. Dishes include beef tea with suet dumplings to start and cote de boeuf with triple cooked chips for main.

Claire Livingston, general manager at Hilton Edinburgh Carlton, says, “Every time Marco visits the restaurant it always creates an extra buzz around the place and we very much look forward to welcoming him back.”
