I'm a Canadian Chef, and I'm spending 15 days in Scotland on my honeymoon (we're both over 65!)

but I can't imagine 2 weeks without cooking. Is it possible to join a team for a few hours and make some great food together?
Restaurant, retirement home, cafe, bistro, you name it, I'd love to experience the people and the food. I won't let you down!

    @DeborahManion_01 I love the Craigh na Dun filming location :).

    I visited there in December 2015. It was stormy though and I would love to go back on a nicer day. It's a stunning area all in its own right.

    Remember to look out for the stone wall that was used as the sign post for Craigh na Dun. It's where the car park is for Schiehallion mountain. The Craigh na Dun location is further down the road.



    I have more photos on my blog if you're interested: https://loveexploringscotland.com/2015/12/31/outlander-birthday-with-storm-frank/

    I've also visited a few other filming locations, but I still have so many places to visit! https://loveexploringscotland.com/category/outlander/

    Have a lovely time exploring Scotland!

    In Aberdeen there is the Nick Nairn Cook School. I understand you are qualified professionals, but maybe you could join in a class for the fun of it? You can check them out on the internet. Their premises are right in the centre of the city, close to a historic church and the granite mile of Union Street.

    Congratulations on your wedding!
    If you are heading down Ayrshire way there are a couple of places which normally offer lessons but they might be interested in cooking with you too. There's The Cook School in Kilmarnock and also Home Cook School in Maybole - she can also come to you, if that helps.
    But as for cooking in a business kitchen I think it might be as @VisitScotlandMuriel said and be a case of contacting them directly.
  • Thankyou for your help, and sorry for the delay in acknowledging... it's been a hectic month! Our itinerary is coming together... Edinburgh, Inverness, Craigh na Dun, Isle of Lewis, Culloden etc in a big giant circle.

    If you add Aberdeen to that circle - that's my doorstep and I could try to put together an afternoon with the local Bistro... 
    Bespoke tours.
    Whisky, Castles and Food a speciality.
