Recently awarded Scottish Chef of the Year 2016.

Often called the Chefs Chef Ian has been a chef for over 45 years so you may well imagine that by now he has honed his art.

Ian was at the time the youngest Englishman to attain a Michelin Star, he has written three best-selling cookery books, ‘A Feast of Fish’ which remained in the shops for 13 years until it was finally superseded by his latest book ‘A Feast of Fish 2’, and Poultry & Game his second book. He is now to be found in the kitchen of Blackaddie House Hotel working with a small team of chefs to bring to South West Scotland his own distinctive style of food.

Immediately prior to taking on Blackaddie Ian ran his own successful Catering Consultancy business and has had clients from as far a field as Istanbul in Turkey to New York, Amsterdam and London.
