New Nick Nairn Cook School opens its doors in Aberdeen
Tue, 05 Jun 2012
The long wait is finally over. Budding cooks from across Aberdeen City & Shire can now learn from the best in the business, acclaimed TV chef Nick Nairn, who opened the doors of his new state-of-the-art Aberdeen cook school to its first pupils last month.
The new cookery school is his second in Scotland, joining a sister venture at Port of Monteith on the edge of the picturesque Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.
Located on two floors in what was formerly St Nicholas Kirk’s old church hall, a stunning listed building in the heart of Aberdeen city centre, the school has been in the pipeline for several years with the popular chef wanting to satisfy the demands of aspiring cooks in the North East.
The location for the new school was a natural choice given the fact that much of the country’s finest fresh produce comes from the fertile farming lands of Scotland’s North East. The school will also give local people in Aberdeen City & Shire the chance to flex their culinary muscles a bit closer to home.
Students will be able to benefit from the expertise of guest chefs and Nick Nairn himself on certain days, as well as being able to cook Italian, Indian and French classic dishes on special day courses.
