Farm Shop Masterclass Hosts Wee Chef in Master Class Series

Hopetoun Farm Shop have announced that the next installment of their popular series of cooking masterclass will be hosted by Craig Wood, head chef of award-winning The Wee Restaurant in North Queensferry.

The masterclass, which takes place on Thursday 7th May, will be focusing on Hopetoun Farm Shop’s free range Chicken, which is a recipient of a Great Taste Gold Award.

The class will see Craig demonstrating how to cook up a mouth-watering spring menu, bursting with fresh flavours, using Hopetoun Farm Shop’s award-winning free range chicken along with other produce from the Estate.

His masterclass dishes will include:

Confit chicken leg with spelt grain and wild mushroom risotto;

Ballotine of chicken supreme with pistachio nuts and spiced peppercorn jus;

Roast chicken breast with garlic, lemon and herbs, asparagus and truffles

Craig will show how to prepare each dish and give helpful tips and advice along the way.

Craig said: “I am delighted to be working again with Hopetoun Farm shop as we move into the summer months. At this time of year the produce is always fantastic, and as the weather warms up and we feature many exciting ingredients on our menu at The Wee Restaurant.

“Last year we hosted a Venison masterclass and this time we will be using their free-range chicken. These succulent chickens are full of flavor and remind us of how chicken should really taste.”

Finally, making sure those fresh, spring flavours are complimented perfectly is Philppe Larue from L’Art du Vin, who will be on hand to share his knowledge and love of wines whilst providing the best pairing for the Hopetoun Farm Shop chicken.

Hopetoun Farm Shop General Manager, Marc Cherrie, said: “We are delighted to welcome Craig back to Hopetoun Farm Shop masterclass kitchen as he was such a big hit the last time he was here. Every one of these events sells out, which I think is because customers relish what is a rare opportunity to learn first hand how to create incredible dishes from award winning chefs. They are already buying the ingredients from us, this just helps them be more creative in their kitchens!”

Craig’s Master Class will take place at Hopetoun Farm Shop near Newton on Thursday 7th May between 6.30-8.30pm. Tickets are £10 each and can be purchased direct from the Hopetoun Farm Shop or by calling 01506 830716
