Highland Park announce 50 chefs signing up to the Slow Food UK Chef Alliance

Highland, Tasting

Highland Park

To kick off Slow Food UK Week (18 – 24 June) in style, following on from the successful launch of the Slow Food UK Chef Alliance in partnership with Highland Park, the award winning single malt whisky has announced that over 50 of the UK’s top chefs have signed up to the Alliance.

The calibre of chefs involved are second to none, including the likes of Michel Roux Jr, Marcus Wareing, Angela Hartnett, Georgio Locatelli, Raymond Blanc, Paul Wedgewood, Neil Forbes, Colin Drsydale, Tony Singh and Michael Smith, with many more helping reach this significant milestone.

Following the London launch hosted by Richard Corrigan at his Mayfair restaurant and the Scottish launch at Oloroso, Highland Park has continued to drive the Alliance forward with Yorkshire, and West Country & Wales Chef Alliance launches taking place over the past few months, and a Midlands launch set for late June with Sat Bains.

This has maintained momentum behind the dynamic scheme, resulting in so many of the UK’s culinary masters actively supporting the aims of Slow Food UK, by championing sustainably sourced quality produce.

To celebrate Slow Food UK Week (18-24 June) many chefs in the Alliance will be holding special Slow Food UK themed menus and events across the UK, as well as exclusive Highland Park tastings. Neil Forbes Edinburgh restaurant, Cafe St Honore, will host a special Slow Food UK and Highland Park supper on June 20, as will Tom Lewis’s luxury restaurant Monachyle MHOR on June 18.
