We asked some of our favourite people to give
us their most loved recipes using fish and shellfish
from sustainable sources. We discovered that many of
the people we work with day to day - the oyster farmer
from the loch, the salmon farmers, even our waiting
staff - have a real talent in the kitchen so we are
excited to share their recipes as we celebrate our birthday.
