Cameron MacBeth is head chef at Cornerstone Seafood Restaurant in the Highland port of Mallaig. Diners can enjoy fresh seafood while looking out across the harbour as the local fishermen land the day’s catch.
I’ve been in the industry for eight years now. I started as a KP when I was 13 years old.
Winning restaurant of the year at the 2017 Scottish Hospitality Awards is definitely the highlight of my career so far.
Becoming head chef at 19 at an already great restaurant has been a huge challenge, but I have a fantastic team who all work incredibly hard and we overcome every obstacle as a team.
We are a seafood restaurant who serves nothing but the freshest ingredients.
We have a small, cosy dining room with an ‘arty’ vibe and amazing views of the harbour.
Amazing, hard-working and passionate.
Fresh scallops. We always have scallops on our menu.
We have an amazing white Rioja in the restaurant that I love.
I love lasagne.
Hard work, passion, discipline and consistency.
Never compromise on quality.
Our food jokes in the kitchen, such as ‘you have to be SQUIDing!’ and ‘for COD sake that was a bad joke’.
I think Gordon Ramsay is amazing. His passion for food and what he has done for the industry is amazing.
I like to play golf in my time off. I’m not very good though!
I went to a small pizzeria in Spain this year and everything about it was stunning.
I would love to go to Restaurant Gordon Ramsay with Gordon himself. That would be amazing!
