Chef on a Mission!

by Cafe St Honoré

Our chef director Neil Forbes will be very busy this Friday and Saturday - take a look at his schedule!

Friday, 1.05pm - appear on BBC Radio Scotland's 'The Kitchen Garden'.

Neil makes his debut as a radio presenter and is asking the questions for a change!  He visits the Princes Street Gardens Kitchen Garden Project and meets the people behind it.  Tune in!

Friday, 4pm - take to the stage at Fringe by the Sea in North Berwick.  

Neil's planning a scrummy salad of wonderful Isle of Mull scallops, heritage potatoes and home-made bacon, a glorious summer pudding and a few wee surprises!  Click the link above to buy a ticket.

Friday night until late - get behind the stoves for a busy service.

Saturday morning - make a trip to the Edinburgh Farmers' Market to place orders and catch up with suppliers.

Saturday lunch - back to the kitchen for another busy service! 

Saturday, 3pm - take to the stage again!  This time at Foodies Festival at Inverleith Park. 

For the seventh year on the trot, Neil will delight and inspire the audience with an array of simple dishes using Scottish produce.   Click the link above for more info.

Saturday, 4pm - mingle, meet and catch up with chefs, producers and customers at Foodies (and perhaps a small glass of something cold).

Saturday night - no rest for the wicked - back behind the stoves for the busiest night of the week! 

Sunday - long lie (if the kids allow). 

He does love being busy!  Follow him on Twitter for the inside scoop - @chefneilforbes
