Scot is chef of the season

Kitchin to cook for diners at Harrods

tom-kitchin-in-kitchenEdinburgh chef Tom Kitchin, who runs Michelin-starred restaurant The Kitchin in Leith, is preparing for a week-long stint as Harrods’ Chef of the Season.

The celebrity cook will be serving lunch and dinner in the Knightsbridge store’s Conservatory at the Georgian restaurant from 15 November.

The pop-up restaurant, Kitchin At Harrods, will celebrate the best of Scottish produce and will reflect Tom’s love of creating seasonal dishes.

Having worked under Pierre Koffmann, Guy Savoy and Alain Ducasse, all of whom hold three Michelin stars, his cooking reflects modern British cuisine influenced by classical French techniques.

Plates will include hand-dived Orkney scallops baked in the shell and served with a white wine, vermouth and herb sauce, and roasted loin of Scottish Borders roe deer served with root vegetables and an apple and juniper berry sauce.

“We are so passionate about the incredible produce we have access to in Scotland,” Tom said, “and I’m thrilled to be bringing a taste of our land and sea to the heart of London later this year.”

A spokeswoman at The Kitchin said: “He is really excited about it. London has been calling for years and he has put it off.

“He has been asked to open a restaurant and I suppose you never say never but home is in Edinburgh and this is a nice thing to do.”
