Ghillie Basan

From the wild glens of the Cairngorms National Park and the bountiful fishing villages of the Moray Coast to Loch Ness, Fort William, Ullapool, the rugged bays and barren moors of Caithness and Sutherland and the rich sea lochs and glens of Argyll, Ghillie travels many mountain roads and windswept landscapes.

The result of her travels is a spectacular celebration of local produce, including local lamb and grass-fed Highland beef, wild venison, fresh salmon and juicy scallops, seasonal fruits and berries, artisan cheeses and breads and, of course, beer, gin and whisky.

Ghillie Basan has written over 40 books on different culinary cultures. Her food and travel articles have appeared in a huge variety of newspapers and magazines, including The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph, BBC Good Food magazine and Eating magazine. As a broadcaster she has presented and contributed to many BBC radio programmes. As well as running cookery workshops she also works as a flavour and food pairing consultant for bar tenders and chefs.
