Rural Affairs Secretary Mairi Gougeon said:

“The Scottish Culinary Team plays a vital role in the promotion of our national produce and raising awareness of Scotland as a leading food producer.

“As we head in to one of the most important weeks in the food and drink calendar with the upcoming Royal Highland Show, I am pleased to announce support for the national team at the Culinary World Cup, which provides an excellent opportunity to enhance Scotland’s food and drink reputation.

“I would like to thank Scottish Chefs for their work in training and nurturing the incredible talent we have in this country and wish the team the very best for the competition.” 

Captain of the Scottish Culinary Team and Worldchefs Global Chef finalist, Orry Shand, said:

“The support that we have received from the Scottish Government through this Grant Award will greatly assist our challenge in Luxembourg at the Culinary World Cup competing against the world’s leading culinary nations.

“We can now focus on ensuring Scotland’s high world ranking can be maintained and set the standard for our next generation of chefs.”


Scottish Chefs is Scotland’s only recognised autonomous culinary organisation for chefs, and is a not for profit organisation open to all individuals in Scotland who are actively engaged in the preparation or the management of service of food.

Scotland will prepare and present a Scottish Menu for 110 guests in the Restaurant of Nations and also present a Buffet for 12 covers in the Chefs Table. The menu for both elements will be composed of produce from Scotland and showcase our world famous lamb, fish and shell fish.
