Scotland’s Young Chef of the Year Makes a Toast to Robert Burns
As the annual celebratory tribute to the life, works and spirit of the great Scottish poet Robert Burns approaches, The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa get set to take their luxury event experience to Sweden.
Later this month, The Old Course Hotel will host a traditional burns supper at the St Jörgen Park Resort in Gothenburg, prepared by none other than Scotland’s Young Chef of the Year, Ross Marshall – Head Chef of the resort’s award winning Road Hole Restaurant.
The event in Gothenburg on the 30th January will see Ross prepare a Scottish feast for some of the top golf and finance journalists, and will be run in partnership with “English at St Andrews” (EASA) and United Events.
EASA is an exclusive opportunity for individuals who wish to improve their conversational English, business English and presentational skills and communicate more effectively in English.
Set at the hotel, the course has attracted individuals who want to combine the primarily educational experience with the opportunity to be based in St Andrews, a university town with over 1,000 years of heritage, and famous for many as the home of golf.
Daniel Pereira, General Manager at the resort anticipates a very warm reception in Gothenburg: “We are looking forward to taking a little bit of out Scottish culture and heritage to Sweden and showing them all that is great about Burns Night. It is such a unique celebration and who better to prepare your Burns Supper than Scotland’s Young Chef of the Year!”
The resort will also be celebrating in their home country with Mark Gardner and Deborah Luna Rose from the resort attending a Bowmore Whisky event two days earlier, on the 28th January, to Address the Haggis. In addition, the resort are proud to boast a bar which attracts whisky aficionados from around the globe to sample the stunning selection of whiskies, of which there are over 200. The iconic Road Hole Bar, overlooking the famous Old Course, represents every operational and many mothballed distilleries in Scotland in their selection, making it a popular destination for a wee Burns Night dram!
Back in Gothenburg, EASA’s Director, Denis McQuade, will be performing the Address to the Haggis: “The event is an opportunity to showcase the EASA programme, to allow guests to sample the delights of Scottish culture and see all that both the Old Course Hotel, and EASA has to offer. We have a unique programme, and our stunning destination, St Andrews, allows us to tailor the course to each individual client’s needs and enhance it with their preferred blend of golf, cultural excursions and single malt whisky appreciation.”
