Gary Maclean is Executive Chef at the college and a former winner of MasterChef: The Professionals. He was appointed Scotland's first National Chef by the Scottish Government to promote Scotland as a Good Food Nation. In this role, Gary celebrates the rich larder of produce that Scotland has available and advocates the use of locally sourced, healthy, sustainable and affordable food.

Gary will be hosting more of his popular Demos, Cook Schools and Dinners at the college over the coming year.  Use the links below to find out more and book your place.

Saturday Cook School

You will spend the day with Gary and a small group of Cook School guests in the state of the art kitchens cooking your meal. Gary will demonstrate a three-course meal which you will then cook and sit down and enjoy with a glass of wine.  This is suitable for all abilities as there will be plenty of help and support from Gary throughout the day.


These are fun evenings where Gary will demonstrate some of his favourite dishes alongside questions from the audience and stories from Gary about his time on MasterChef and his culinary travels.  The Demos will start at 6.30pm with a buffet and drinks for guests.


Gary will cook and host a four-course meal for guests who will enjoy a sit-down meal in our on-site restaurant, Scholars.
