At the Blackaddie Hotel restaurant, the provenance of supplies has always been a passion for Ian, if he wasn’t a chef he would still seek out only the best possible ingredients for whatever he was doing. Over the years Ian has worked tirelessly to build up strong supply chains always utilising local producers and suppliers to the maximum and here at Blackaddie is no exception to that. The fresher the better and the closer to home he can source the happier Ian is so much so that he has always grown his own whenever the opportunity presents itself. Indeed here at Blackaddie we have our own kitchen garden and while it is only small and still very much in its infancy still supplies much to the kitchen through the main growing season.
