Scotch Beef for ‘Diner des Grands Chefs’ supplied by Orkney farm

AN Orkney farming family are delighted their cattle were chosen as the source of the Scotch Beef served at the Diner des Grands Chefs, one of the most prestigious gatherings of top chefs in the world.

The Scotch Beef PGI served at the charity dinner, for which guests paid £600 per ticket, was sourced by Bridge of Allan-based Scotbeef from the Sinclair family at Unigarth in Sandwick.

The Diner des Grands Chefs, which was this year held in London following stints in Versailles and New York, saw 46 ‘Grands Chefs’ of 13 different nationalities represented, including France, the United States, Japan, South Africa, Singapore and Taiwan.

The acclaimed chefs joined forces to create an exceptional culinary ‘wow’ with ‘pop-up kitchen’ cooking stations allowing them to cook live in front of guests. Each chef prepared a dish with a key ingredient sourced in the UK, of which Scotch Beef PGI was one.

The family have farmed at Unigarth for five generations and Rognvald, Barbara and their son Steven and wife Leona have gradually built the size of their Aberdeen Angus herd to 200 breeding cows.

“The fact that Scotch Beef was served at such a prestigious event is testament to the high esteem our beef, with its quality assurance and traceability, is held in at the high end of the global culinary scene,” said Margaret Stewart, marketing manager with Quality Meat Scotland.

“The Sinclair family are committed to producing a first class quality assured product and they were delighted to have been chosen to supply the beef for this prestigious event attended by so many key influential top chefs,” she added.

Grab a pizza Mona Lisa | allmediascotland…Your key to the media

Grab a pizza Mona Lisa | allmediascotland…Your key to the media | Scottish Food & Drink Industry | Scoop.it

MASTER chef and artist Domenico Crolla, proprietor of Bella Napoli in Shawlands on the southside of Glasgow, has unveiled his latest pizza art creation; a depiction of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa, in mozzarella.


Domenico said: “Every so often, another Mona Lisa is discovered to great acclaim. However, whilst these discoveries transpire to be alternative versions of the portrait undertaken by Leonardo himself, I can confirm that the artist behind this latest ‘cheesy’ portrait is none other that myself.


“Who knows, perhaps the secret behind Mona Lisa’s famous enigmatic smile is that she was licking her lips at the thought of a delicious margherita pizza?”


Inspired by Andy Warhol’s monochrome printing technique, Domenico Crolla’s utterly unique pizza art creations has seen him depict a series of celebrity portraits on pizza toppings – including The Pope, footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and singer Rihanna.


Demand for his pizza art has been such that plans are now in place for his pizza portraits to be depicted across a range of products, from t-shirts and aprons to mugs and mouse mats.
