College Master Chef Haggis Star of Burns Supper

MasterChef: The Professionals 2016 winner, senior chef lecturer, Gary MacLean, prepared the star of City of Glasgow College’s annual Burns Supper, the haggis.

Gary’s award winning pigeon breast, haggis and pigeon Scotch broth, which featured in his winning recipes during the recent TV culinary competition was served up to over 50 distinguished guests at the College’s annual Burns Supper on Thursday 26 January.

Principal and Chief Executive at City of Glasgow College, Paul Little, said:

“As an honorary Scot I’m proud to lead this traditional event held in our elegant training restaurant within our incredible new City campus. Certainly no other Burns Supper will feature such an award winning menu prepared by the very best chef lecturers and talented students.

“I think Rabbie himself would have loved such an array of the great and the good gathered in celebration of his life and work.”

Senior Chef Lecturer Gary MacLean, said:

“It is always an exciting challenge creating an imaginative menu for guests to our College and events like this provide excellent learning opportunities for our students.

“I have been incredibly busy since winning MasterChef but our students here at the College remain my priority and I am looking forward to working with them to produce a winning Burns themed dinner.”

The evening also provided the perfect setting to unveil the College's official flag with its distinctive heraldic crest. It was presented to Principal Little by the Rt. Hon. Lord Lyon King of Arms.
