Less hurry raises money at Slow Food charity event

• Slow Food chef Neil Forbes.

Ten of Scotland’s top chefs joined forces with single malt Highland Park earlier this month to host a fundraising event for Slow Food, a non-profit organisation which promotes small-scale local producers.

The ‘Meet and Greet the Champions of Scottish Food’ event took place at Summerhall in Edinburgh as part of ‘Slow Food Week’.
Visitors got the chance to sample food prepared in live demonstrations by the chefs and pair dishes with samples of Highland Park whisky.
Neil Forbes, head chef at Cafe St Honoré in Edinburgh, said: “It’s such an important message to share: simple, local, seasonal food that is good, clean and fair should be available to all. Reconnecting with food, and people, at an easy, accessible level is what we should all do and the Chef Alliance brings like-minded chefs together, to talk, teach and pass on skills and knowledge.”
