Tourism St Andrews are delighted to work with Savour St Andrews
a group which aims to use the area’s ever-growing reputation for high quality food and drink experiences to bring more people to the town outwith the traditional tourist season.
Following on from the success of 2016 - plans are now well underway for events in and around St Andrew's Day 2017, with top chefs from several local businesses taking part under the theme "Savour St Andrews".
During the 2016 St Andrew’s Day Dinner, held at the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa, live filming from the kitchen was beamed into the ballroom by Fife College. Guests were able to see the chefs, SRUC Elmwood and Fife College students and hotel staff in action as the dinner progressed. The chef team featured Old Course Hotel executive chef Martin Hollis; Ian MacDonald, the executive chef at St Andrews Links Trust, also president of the Federation of Chefs Scotland; Geoffrey Smeddle from the Michelin-starred Peat Inn; executive chef Frank Trepesch from five star Fairmont St Andrews; sous chef Nick Kock from Rufflets Country House Hotel (AA Scottish Hotel of the Year); Stewart MacAulay from the multi-award winning Adamson Restaurant (2015 Scottish Restaurant of the Year) and Wullie Balfour, SRUC Elmwood chef lecturer (supervising his team of hospitality students). The Fife College student team worked front of house, mentored by Old Course Hotel staff.
