Craig Wilson, head chef and proprietor of Aberdeenshire’s Eat on the Green restaurant, clinched a win for Scotland in a televised culinary six-nations tournament against Irish chef Oliver Dunne, of Bon Appetit, in Malahide, Dublin.

Dubbed the “kilted chef” by Lorraine Kelly, Craig took part in the cook-off challenge on Ireland’s popular TV programme, The Afternoon Show. Craig created his winning dish of char-grilled Aberdeen-Angus beef with clapshot, crispy haggis, curly kale and a Glen Garioch malt whisky cream especially for the competition. His dish received top marks for giving a true taste of Scotland – from the locally sourced ingredients to his attire, cooking the dish in his trademark kilt.

Craig said: “Winning the culinary six nations tournament is a fantastic achievement. The competition was extremely tough, going head to head against one of Ireland’s fine Michelin-starred chefs, and winning is a real feat. “We are truly blessed to have some of the finest ingredients on our doorstep and the judges were very complimentary about the produce we used in our dish – locally reared beef and haggis bound together with the sweet and heathery essence of Glen Garioch malt whisky, which is created just a few miles from the restaurant.
