Thank you Jamie Oliver. The finale of Jamie’s Great Britain series on Channel 4 featured a host of Scottish favourites and some Jamie innovations in a culinary journey around the West Coast of Scotland. Featuring Ian Brown at The Ubiquitous Chip and Arbroath Smokie Hero Iain Spink, Jamie Oliver managed to also cram in a whisky laced mussel dish, scallops with clapshot and black pudding, potatoe scones, venison with barley rissotto, Eccelfechan tart and Cloutie Dumpling.
Jamie Oliver’s enthusiasm for Scottish food and the countryside was worthy of an Oscar and a return ticket courtesy of VisitScotland. Hopefully some of these dishes will be inspiration for any restaurant not already featuring a Taste of Scotland on their menus.
